The Confederacy of Andropolia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, suspicion of poets, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.814 billion Andropolians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.0%.

The very strong Andropolian economy, worth 222 trillion Amples a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 58,467 Amples, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 299,732 per year while the poor average 6,254, a ratio of 47.9 to 1.

Strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, and the government is spending millions on renovating the public transportation system. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem. Andropolia's national animal is the Penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Andropolia is ranked 71,926th in the world and 3,269th in the South Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,454.93 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
