The Empire of Aandruzognivia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Esgalduin Gurubandal with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 2.571 billion Aandruzognivians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hapapheperoma. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aandruzognivian economy, worth 422 trillion Dinariuses a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 164,421 Dinariuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, criminals are thrown to the Eagles to repay their debt to society, confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aandruzognivia's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Northern Vistibulan Orthodox.

Aandruzognivia is ranked 4,668th in the world and 86th in the Rejected Realms for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 22 Valid Endorsements.
