The Colony of Andout is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jordan Snyder with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.093 billion Andoutians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lisabon. The average income tax rate is 49.2%.

The Andoutian economy, worth 120 trillion pesos a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 38,988 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, people who get diabetes can sue donut manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, and the wheel has been patented by at least a hundred people. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Andout's national animal is the fox and its national religion is Catholicism.

Andout is ranked 186,751st in the world and 230th in Oneid for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 65,680 Standard Monetary Units.
