The Federation of Andreso is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Exalted Highness Fransisco Andreso with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.816 billion Andresoans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port of Ghent. The average income tax rate is 81.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Andresoan economy, worth 781 trillion Andreyoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 204,863 Andreyoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

New cases of Asbestosis are cropping up as quickly as hospitals can deal with them, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, and practising saying 'how now brown cow' is an essential part of holiday planning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Andreso's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Andreso is ranked 4,124th in the world and 39th in The Communist Bloc for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 14,727.02 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
