Handal Ands

Population10.791 billion

CapitalLuxich Chist Grontier
LeaderPresident Henrik Litzinger


The Commonwealth of Handal Ands is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Henrik Litzinger with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 10.791 billion Handal Andsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Luxich Chist Grontier. The average income tax rate is 43.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Handal Andsian economy, worth a remarkable 3,389 trillion Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 314,108 Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is wading into dangerous waters, the military is plagued with unethical researchers, the nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles, and knock-knock jokes regularly get removed from websites for being too edgy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Handal Ands's national animal is the Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Handal Ands is ranked 7,997th in the world and 1st in Republic of Allied States for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 9,312.27 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
