The Supreme Peaceful Enlightened of Andromeda Islands is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its avant-garde cinema, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical population of 30.404 billion Andromeda Islands are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Environment, and Education. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Andromedan economy, worth a remarkable 1,938 trillion Golden Euros a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 63,761 Golden Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, bald-headed monks sit around the National Meditation Park looking smugly content, mountains of VHS tapes of police actions are stacking up in the National Library, and almost half of the child population live rough on the streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Andromeda Islands's national animal is the Black Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Andromeda Islands is ranked 180,521st in the world and 4,832nd in the Rejected Realms for Most Pro-Market, scoring -76.12 on the Rand Index.
