The Constitutional Republic of Andaricus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Commander Daniel Johnson with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 24.135 billion Andarians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, although Education and Defense are also considered important, while Law & Order and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andaria City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Andaricusian economy, worth an astonishing 13,615 trillion andarian credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 564,137 andarian credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, and an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Andaricus's national animal is the thunderbird, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Andaricus is ranked 7th in the world and 1st in Former United States for Rudest Citizens, with 1,984.07 Insults Per Minute.
