The Raiding Armies of West Andes is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Absolutely Nobody with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, daily referendums, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.302 billion Andesians 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, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Administration is also considered important, while Law & Order and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andes City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The all-consuming Andesian economy, worth 209 trillion drakes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 160,743 drakes, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,048,123 per year while the poor average 9,756, a ratio of 107 to 1.

Government officials go door-to-door educating about the dangers of pseudoscience, the freedom to be free is always just out of reach, sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, and passive-aggressive congratulations cards inform mums-to-be that their pregnancy is their greatest achievement in life. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. West Andes's national animal is the Cliff Racer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Raiderism.

West Andes is ranked 4,742nd in the world and 3rd in Lone Wolves United for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 21 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
