The Borderlands of Andoverchocotanigh is a tiny, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 18 million Andoverchocotanighians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 8.0%.
The strong Andoverchocotanighian economy, worth 1.06 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 58,876 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.
The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, organ donation is compulsory, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Andoverchocotanigh's national animal is the kiwi, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
