The People's Republic of Andurand is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its smutty television, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 405 million Andurandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Agrevaṇa. The average income tax rate is 59.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Andurandian economy, worth 15.9 trillion Guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 39,356 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, the 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and bizarre-looking creatures called 'Bullet antdogs' dominate wildlife preserves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Andurand's national animal is the Bullet ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Andurand is ranked 142,484th in the world and 6,069th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 155.47 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
