The Empire of Andreusz is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Andreusz I with an iron fist, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, digital currency, and smutty television. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 4.23 billion Andreuszians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citadel of the Iguana. The average income tax rate is 85.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Andreuszian economy, worth 439 trillion Imperial Credits 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, highly specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. 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 an impressive 104,007 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, space has been brought down to earth with constellations of cancer cases across Andreusz, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Andreusz's national animal is the Iguana, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Scarlet Iguana.

Andreusz is ranked 14,055th in the world and 230th in 10000 Islands for Highest Poor Incomes, with 87,966.68 Standard Monetary Units.
