Andromeda Islands

AnimalBlack Owl

The Supreme Peaceful Enlightened of Andromeda Islands is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 30.688 billion Andromeda Islands are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Environment, and Education. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Andromedan economy, worth a remarkable 2,158 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 70,328 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 26,456th in the world and 650th in the Rejected Realms for Nudest, with 212.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
