The Reformed Monarchy of The Grand Empire of Andor is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Azrael with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 13.86 billion Andorians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Andoran economy, worth a remarkable 1,319 trillion Basics a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,219 Basics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel, there'll be no comeback tour for many former boy bands, Emperor Azrael's speeches are beloved by insomniacs, and sending sick politicians "Get Well Soon" cards is considered bribery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Grand Empire of Andor's national animal is the Lemur, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Grand Empire of Andor is ranked 19,171st in the world and 13th in Australialia for Most Developed, scoring 83.68 on the Human Development Index.
