The Grand Duchy of Andmodan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Grand Duke Heinrich Hoffmann with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.402 billion Andmodanians 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 enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vildorf. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Andmodanian economy, worth 33.5 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 23,892 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, billions of marks are being poured into a space program, and there's sophisticated talk of revolution within the ever-expanding mining colonies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Andmodan's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Andmodan is ranked 221,996th in the world and 130th in Caer Sidi for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -8.25 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
