The Empire of Andreusz is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Andreusz I with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory vegetarianism, and digital currency. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.724 billion Andreuszians 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citadel of the Iguana. The average income tax rate is 83.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Andreuszian economy, worth 396 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 106,378 Imperial Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Illegal hunting is rife after veganism was recently made compulsory, people have been circulating political cartoons of pigeons pooping on Emperor Andreusz I, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Andreusz's national animal is the Iguana, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of the Scarlet Iguana.

Andreusz is ranked 71,563rd in the world and 608th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 22.58 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
