The Nomadic Peoples of Dep Andy is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Dep Andy High Command with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.04 billion Dep Andyians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Military bunker one. The average income tax rate is 51.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Dep Andyian economy, worth 80.2 trillion francs 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, fairly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Retail. 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 26,392 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', and the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dep Andy's national animal is the cobra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Militarism.

Dep Andy is ranked 228,140th in the world and 320th in Oneid for Most Beautiful Environments, with 95.82 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
