The Allied States of The Andromeda Islands is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by The National Assembly with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 9.294 billion Andromedans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Education and Public Transport are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andromeda City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Retail and Gambling.

Commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, and elected officials often serve for decades in a single term. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is pervasive. The Andromeda Islands's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Andromedan Dollar.

The Andromeda Islands is ranked 2nd in The Triphorian Empire and 3,334th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 125 Dawkins.
