Andotastan

The Empire of Andotastan is a large, orderly nation, renowned for its closed borders, anti-smoking policies, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 87 million Andotastanis 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 enormous, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Healthcare also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Andotastani economy, worth 3.46 trillion pounds 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. 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 39,811 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's considered a valid legal defence to say "a demon made me do it", the new coalition government has 99 problems and can't agree on how to fix one, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and every worker receives exactly the same pay regardless of productivity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Andotastan's national animal is the Serval, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Andotastan is ranked 71,966th in the world and 2nd in Glorious Communist Empire for Most Armed, with 0.54 weapons per person.
