The Federation of Andreso is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by His Exalted Highness Fransisco Andreso with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.283 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 80.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Andresoan economy, worth 664 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 202,460 Andreyoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', squeaky high prepubescent voices recite the patriotic poem "Hail to The Leader!" before each meal, retail stores are known for creating their own oddly-similar holidays in the months preceding any major festivity, and His Exalted Highness Fransisco Andreso's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Andreso's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Andreso is ranked 157,263rd in the world and 910th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 42.46 Workforce Participation Rate.
