The Kingdom of Andyr is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.13 billion Andyr are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Andyr economy, worth a remarkable 2,346 trillion Dataries a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 231,590 Dataries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post, and motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Andyr's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Andyr is ranked 3,154th in the world and 83rd in Lazarus for Most Influential, scoring 20,502 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
