|Leader||High Chancellor Alexander Argead|
The Royal Olympian Empire of Andanavia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by High Chancellor Alexander Argead with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, aversion to nipples, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.656 billion Andanavians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 44.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Andanavian economy, worth 117 trillion Tetradrachms a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,717 Tetradrachms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, and stockbrokers dream of getting rich by writing textbooks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Andanavia's national animal is the Hydra, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
