|Animal||Peoples National Dragoon Regiment|
The United Socialist States of Andour-Kaito is a very large, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 169 million Andour-Kaitoans 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 58.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Andour-Kaitoan economy, worth 4.55 trillion gories a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 26,893 gories, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-gory treacle machine, the best doughnut stores have been taken over by foreign police officers, all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, and deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Andour-Kaito's national animal is the Peoples National Dragoon Regiment, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
