Andromeda Islands

Population28.48 billion

CurrencyGolden Euro
AnimalBlack Owl

The Supreme Peaceful Enlightened of Andromeda Islands is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 28.48 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, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, although Environment, Law & Order, and Defense are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 89.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but inefficient Andromedan economy, worth a remarkable 1,631 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 57,274 Golden Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Andromeda Islands will pay them to stop, ghost regiments exist only on paper, and kids are exceptionally good at digging holes. 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 151,919th in the world and 4,833rd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -17.97 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
