The Omg Kitteh peoples of Andacantra is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Abbey Cat with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 15.373 billion Andacantrans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Industry receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andanda. The average income tax rate is 86.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Andacantran economy, worth 420 trillion Candas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 27,342 Candas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Andacantran basket weaving sector is on the brink of collapse as cheap imports flood the market, foreign investment has dropped to a trickle after laws were passed preventing investors from taking their earnings abroad, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Andacantra's national animal is the Kittehcat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is catnip.

Andacantra is ranked 29,197th in the world and 1,450th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 168.54 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
