Andrendia, officially the Axolotl Empire of Andrendia, is a unitary state in North-East Bailtem bordered in the West by Earamia, Arnchow and the CBR.

The country is a Democratic Constitutional Empire and is currently ruled by Emperor Andrea Oloto VII, with Giacomo La Greca as the Prime Minister.

The Official Language is Apennise, with Austral, Aranzian, Herculanean and Portian as National ones. The official religion is Azaelism.


The history of Andrendia is divided in 6 Eras, 7 including Prehistory.


Civilization in Andrendia started around 15,000 BC in the area around the Magazo Jungle. For thousands of years humans lived in nomadic groups until around 10,000 BC they started building villages. Around this time the oldest religion in Andrendia was created: The Cult of Axolotls, an endemic species of Andrendia. The followers of the Cult were called Axolians.

Ancient Era (Circa 10,000 BC-678)

Vulcanbonian-Axolandian War

Time passed and many small nations were formed, but this part of the Andreian history is really obscure since almost all information was destroyed around 678, when a war broke out between the biggest kingdoms of ancient Andrendia, the Vulcanbonian Kingdom and the Axoland Kingdom. The Vulcanbonian Kingdom worshiped the Gods of Mount Vulcanbon, a religion that believed in gods living on Mount Vulcanbon, an important volcano in Northern Andrendia. The Axoland kingdom was a kingdom of Axolians. This war was devastating. Almost all of the Countries involved and the Axoland and Vulcanbonian Kingdoms collapsed. The only other effect of the war was that the Vulcanbonian cult disappeared, leaving only its culture, and the Cult Of Axolotls became the biggest religion in Andrendia.

This event marked the end of the Ancient Era and the start of the Middle Era.

Middle Era (678-1387)

Map of the Middle Era

The aftermath of the Vulcanbonian-Axolandian War

In 1073 the chaos caused by the War ended and new stable powers formed across all of the territories involved in it.

The direct successors of the Vulcanbonian and Axoland Kingdom were the Vulcanbonian State, an almost anarchic territory, and the Axoli Republic, a nation reformed by parts of the Axolandian government that were inspired by the Republic of Arancio.

Other countries that formed were:

  • The short-lived Great Duchy of Picentania
  • The Confederation of the Alps and the Confederation of the Magazo, two confederations of smaller states that formed after the war.
  • The Cilentranean Kingdom, a monarchy that was ruled by a man that proclaimed to be a descendant of the gods believed by the Vulcanbonians.
  • The Republic of the Tirriatico, a little republic with a great naval force.

Meanwhile, the Republic of Arancio, an ancient country located in the arid south, kept prospering by trading its resources with neighboring countries.

Early Axolian Era (1387-1496)

Transformation of the Axoli Republic into the Axolian Empire

In 1387, descendants of the Axoland crown took control of the Axoli government and proclaimed the transformation of the country into the Axolian Empire, with the plan of reuniting all of their ancient lands under their rule.

This event marked the start of the Early Axolian Era and of the Axolian Unification Wars.

The maritime supremacy of the Tirriatican Empire

In 1403 the Republic of the Tirriatico transformed into the Tirriatican Empire and started colonizing the coasts of North-Eastern Bailtem.

The Empire also started trading with nations all over Pacifica, becoming one of the biggest traders on the planet.

Axolian Era (1496-1577)

The Unification under the Axolian Empire

In 1496 the Axolian Unification Wars ended, unifying almost all of the Nations that were located in the territories now controlled by Andrendia, diplomatically or militarily, under the Axolian Empire.

This event marked the start of the Axolian Era.

Early Andreian Era (1577-1798)

The Tale of Franco Oloto[1]

Then in 1577, the great explorer Franco Oloto started a journey in the northern part of the Axolian Empire. He saw an island off the coast from his ship and decided to explore it. He didn’t know, but that was the biggest decision of his life. On the island, that later he will call Azalea Island, he found a jungle full of strange Azalea trees, a strange find since Azaleas grow in bushes. Then in the middle of the island he found a ruined temple and there Azaleo appeared. Azaleo is the Flowering Azalea God, that in ancient times was worshiped by a mysterious civlization. Franco tried to touch the God, but his hand passed through him, he was just an apparition. Azaleo smiled and asked him to spread his cult back to Andrendia. He became the Messiah of Azaelism and reached the capital of the Axolian Empire, Axolia, and started talking about his find. A few started following him but many started attacking him and thinking he was crazy. Then the unthinkable happened. The Miracle of Axolia, where Azaleo appeared and took control over Franco Oloto to spread his word. This completely changed the Empire.

Some days later the Emperor was removed by the people and Franco became the first Emperor of the Axolotl Empire of Andrendia, called like this in name of his son, Andrea Oloto I.

This event marked the start of the Early Andreian Era.

Spreading of Azaelism across Andrendia

After the Miracle of Axolia, Azaelism became the national religion of the country and to spread it, from 1577 to 1604, the Azaleo's Squadroon, a religious group founded by Franco Oloto, started to spread Azaelism across Andrendia.

The Squadroon didn't force people into believing the religion, but still tried to spread it as much as possible.

There were many episodes where members of the group committed violent attacks against Axolians and other Non-Azaelists.

In 1604, after a massacre of Axolians that refused to believe in Azaelism caused by members of the Squadroon, Empress Maria Oloto I dissolved the group, proclaiming that the religion was present enough in the Nation and that atrocities like this were inhumane.

Andreian Era (1798-Present Day)

Invasion of the Republic of Arancio

In 1798 the last Pre-Axolian State, the ancient Republic of Arancio was invaded by the Empire after the Arancian border guard attacked a carriage that was taking Andreian diplomats to the capital of Val D'Arancio.

The war only lasted a month and it was a major Andreian victory.

The newly annexed territories became the Autonomous Region of Southern Andrendia, that, like Northern Andrendia, received its autonomy due to its long history of independence from powers coming from the Great Andreian Plains.

This event marked the start of the Andreian Era.

The Dark Ages of the Andreian Era

"The Dark Ages of the Andreian Era" is a term used to define the rule of Emperor Franco Oloto III.

During his rule, the emperor installed many policies that limited the belief in the Cult of Axolotls, the autonomy of the regions and many of the people's freedoms.

Living in this period of history is often defined as one of the worst times to live in Andrendia.

Map of Andrendia during the Civil War (1804)

Andreian Civil War

On July 14th 1802 Andrendia saw the start of a civil war. After the many tensions between the Axolian population and the Empire, the Emperor Franco Oloto III was killed by an Axolian extremist.

The war was fought between five different factions:

  • The Axolian Faction, tired of the Emperor's policies, they wanted to take control of Andrendia and get revenge on the Azaelists.
  • The Andrea Oloto IV Supporters, who supported the government of the new emperor and wanted to bring peace back to the nation.
  • The Franco III Loyalists, who believed that the Emperor was right and held power only in small but fortified areas.
  • The Arancian and Vulcanbonian Independentists, that after the removal of their autonomy wanted their Independence back.

Immediately after the assassination, Axolians started to rebel and take control of large areas of the country. Meanwhile the new government rushed to stop the rebels and took immediate control of Azalea Island, to stop the likely planned devastation of the Temple.

On December 22rd 1802 Northern and Southern Andrendia declared Independence from the Empire and started fighting against both the Empire and the Axolians.

Then from the March of 1803 to the February of 1804 the worst event in the War happened. In the pocket of land in Picentania controlled by the Empire in the Axolian territories massive attacks happened, killing mostly civilians. The survivors of the attacks were then took to the biggest city near the Exclave, Collinetia, to be tortured and killed. Houndreds of innocent people were killed in the city. Collinetia would be renamed Picentia after the war in name of the civilians that lost their lives in the city.

On February 4th 1804 a massive attack from the Empire attacked the city, discovering and stopping the massacres. Axolian generals declared that this was a revenge for the attacks made by the Azaleo's Squadroon against Axolians.

On the 1st of May 1804, on the coast of Cilentranea, Emperor Andrea Oloto IV signed a peace declaration with the Franco III Loyalists, that joined the Empire and started helping it to stop the Axolian Faction and the Independentists.

During all of 1805 the Empire made countless attacks in Vulcanbonia to stop the secessionists, capturing their capital and annexing them on October 17th.

Then on January 8th 1806 a delegation from Arancia sent a request to reunite with the Empire, but keeping their autonomy. The Empire accepted the request.

On the 15th of July 1807 the Great Battle of Andreopolis was fought. The Axolians attacked Andreopolis on the first lights of the day, surprising the population. They burned the Emperor's Palace and destroyed many Azaelist Churches. Some hours later the Empire's counterattack devastated most of the Axolian army and then emperor Andrea Oloto IV killed the leader of the Axolian Faction, after he shot him in the arm.

Finally on the 20th of July 1807, the Emperor signed a peace treaty with the generals of the Axolian Faction declaring the complete reunification of Andrendia and the end of the war.

All of the policies created by Franco Oloto III were nullified and autonomy was restored in Northern and Southern Andrendia.

Andrendia after the Civil War and onwards

On December 3rd 1839, the first railway in Andrendia, the Trenia-Andreopolis railway, was opened.

In 1860 the Great Reclamation Project started, removing the entirety of the Swamps in the Great Andreian Plains.

In 1864 Andrendia partecipated to the negotiations of the Grovne Conventions.

On March 9th 1921 the recently on power Emperor Franco Oloto IV, known as the Great Reformer, installed new economic policies, following the socialist ideals he heard of during his youth. This decision made him very loved between workers.

On August 23rd 1925 the Block River Dam was completed, the area that became the Block Dam Lake completely filled with water in 1949.

Through the entirety of the Great War, Andrendia remained neutral. The decision made to maintain diplomatic relations with both sides of the war.

On 15 February 1973 Franco Oloto IV founded the Andreian Space Program and some day later, after a National Referendum, joined the CPSC.


First Level Sub-divisions

Andrendia has 11 first level sub-divisions: 2 Autonomous Regions, 3 Island Regions and 5 Normal Regions. The eleventh region is a special region composed of the enormous metropolitan area of the Capital.

Normal Regions


In this mostly mountainous region are located the peaks of the Andreian mountains, from which the various rivers of the nation generate. Picentia, the biggest inhabited center, is called like that in name of the Picentanian Azaelists deported there during the Andreian Civil War.


In this flat region flows the Picentino river, so called by the Picentini population who also gives the region its name. Among the major inhabited centers we have Sala, a city based on the production of cheeses, and Pontinia, the city where the symbol of the region is located, an ancient bridge built over a large canyon in the mountains.


This very water-rich region is one of the most populated thanks to the presence of the inhabited centers of Trenia, home of the Andreian Railways, and Faiano, a large city where potatoes, a typical Andreian food, are produced. The region is crossed by the two major rivers of the nation: the Brick, which flows to the capital and then into the sea, and the Block, which stops at the Block Dam Lake, a lake generated by the gigantic dam that supplies the region with energy, to then flow into the Brick via canals.


In this region flows the Magazo, a river that flows into the Gulf of Axolotls, the largest gulf in the nation. In the center of the region is also located the Magazo Jungle, the biggest in the Nation. The region is both the main manufactoring and agricoltural center of Andrendia, thanks to the presence of the cities of Fabraica and Pastoria.


In this coastal region, tourism is very present. The main inhabited center is Cilentina, a tourist city full of hotels and shops. In the north of the region, in the middle of the sea lies a gigantic offshore wind farm which supplies energy to the region.

Island Regions

The Topographic/Political map of Andrendia

In this small island based on fishing and tourism there is an almost tropical flora. The only inhabited center is Perletria, where there is a large center for the collection of pearls and the national aquarium.


On this island located off the autonomous region of Northern Andrendia there is a large diamond mine that provides great wealth to the region. There are no very large inhabited centers but in the village of Diamantia there is a museum about the Diamond mines with an exhibition of minerals.


On this island off the coast of the autonomous region of Southern Andrendia there are many meteoric craters rich in platinum, the main resource of the island. In this region there are no large inhabited centers, but in the village of Platiniano there is a museum about asteroids and a large astronomical observatory.

Autonomous Regions

Northern Andrendia

In this autonomous region is located the great Mount Vulcanbon, an active volcano that generates large columns of lava during its eruptions. In the western part of the volcano there are large spruce forests and the Forco river flows here. The eastern part, on the other hand, is very similar to Cilentranea. The two main towns are Andria in the west and Costella in the east. In the east of the region there is a small island, Azalea Island, where the Azalea Temple is located. This is why the island is a destination for many religious pilgrimages.

Southern Andrendia

In this autonomous region the coast is very high and rocky, which forms wonderful cliffs. The two major inhabited centers are Sudria and Sporgeria, where huge cliffs are located. South of Sporgeria the climate becomes very hot and what was previously a plain interrupted by small woods, becomes a large prairie full of shrubs and cacti. The prairie is divided from the rest of the region by a large system of Mesas. This Mesas are known for their great reserves of Oil and Natural Gas that are extracted in the many extraction sites of the region.


Panorama of Andreopolis

Capitalia is the metropolitan area of the capital of Andrendia, Andreopolis.

Andreopolis is a metropolis located on the mouth of Brick river and is inhabited, including the rest of Capitalia, by over 18 milion people.

The city is known for its skyscrapers, parks, bridges and monuments.

The capital is also an important economic and tourism center.

The Imperial Mansion and the Parliament are also located in the city.

Map of the subdivisions of Andrendia

Second Level Sub-divisions

Each region of Andrendia, except Capitalia, Diamante, Perla and Platino, has second level sub-dvisions.

There are a total of 20 provinces, 24 if we count the four regions without provinces has one of them.

Physical Geography

Andrendia has a variety of environments, from enourmous mountains to calm plains, from great jungles to arid mesas.

The major mountain range are the Andreian Alps, full of volcanic activity, the mountain range has some of the highest mountains in Bailtem, like Mt. Brick and Mt. Block. Located on the west of the nation, this mountains always signed the borders of the Empire.

In the northernmost part of the mountain chain is present the enormous Mt. Vulcanbon, the volcano is not as high as the other peaks of the mountain chain, but is twice as volcanically active.

Going south, we find the Arancio Mesa, an arid and resource rich area full of eroded peaks and flat hills.

The rivers that form from the glaciers of the mountain chain form the Great Andreian Plains, the most inhabited area in the nation. In the past this area was full of swamps and lakes, but many reclamation projects made the area habitable. But humans didn't only remove water, but also move it. The Block River Dam is the biggest of the country and produces energy for all of the surrounding areas, including the capital of Andreopolis. The dam generated the Block Dam Lake, the biggest in Andrendia.

The southern part of the plain is occupied by the Magazo Jungle, the biggest Jungle in Andrendia and a protected area.

Going East we reach the Tirriatico Sea, that goes from the coasts of Andrendia to the great trenches that surround Bailtem and the other continents of the South Pacific.


The Andreian Economy is partially based around a Socialist model.

The Nation's economy is led by Tourism, Ore Extraction, Agriculture, Electronics and Oil and Gas Extraction.

The historic and natural beauties of Andrendia make tourism the biggest economic resource of the Nation.

The Platinum and other Rare Metals extraction on Platino Island and the Diamond Extraction on Diamante Island make Ore Extraction a dangerous, but very useful, resource for the economy.

The Oil and Gas extraction sites in the Southern Mesas are one of the most important economic and energetic resources of Andrendia.

Culture and Population


The national religion is Azaelism.

Azaelists go to Church every Saturday to listen to the "Book of Azaleas", a book written by Franco Oloto during his stay on Azalea Island, which narrates the mythical history of Andrendia and the world, from the birth of Azaleo to the arrival of Franco to the Temple of Azaleas.

For Azaelists azaleas are sacred and everyone has at least one bush of the flower to symbolize their faith in Azaleo.

Every community of Azaelists has a "Gardener"[2] that narrates the Book of Azaleas and performs religious rites.

Then controlling all of the communities there is the Emperor of Andrendia, also known as the Florist, that at the moment is Andrea Oloto VII.

Other religions are present in the country, the major one of those being The Cult of Axolotls, Christianity and Islam.

Map of the Language Minorities in Andrendia


The Official Language of Andrendia is Appenise.

Then the National Languages of the country are Aranzian, Portian and Herculanean.

Austral is also recognized as a National Language, due to the big Austral speaking minority in the "Austral Belt", located between Capitalia and Magazena.


Typical Andreian dishes are the Andreian Mashed Potatoes, made with an ancient recipe from Faiano, and the Picentianean Cheese, a cheese produced with the milk of the cows of Picentania following a production method with unknown origins.

National Symbols

The Axolotl, an endemic species of Andrendia, is the national animal and symbol of the Nation and to this day it is still worshiped by the little communities of Axolians that live across Andrendia.

Another symbol is the Azalea, national flower and symbol of Azaelism.


Andrendia has a population of 120,220,056 inhabitants unequally divided across the nation.

  • There are proposals to change the names of Northern and Southern Andrendia to Vulcanbonia and Arancio, but the government still hasn't decided what to do with them.
  • The current Axolotl population of Andrendia is over 1.500.000, with the most living in the lakes of the Magazo Jungle.
  • The Currency, the Andreian Brick, is named after the minister of economy and explorer Joan "Bricco" Brick, which in 1789 unified all of the currencies of Andrendia under one, the Andreon. The Currency will be named after him along with the region of Brickia, the Brick River and Mt Brick, where he tragically died during an exploration of the peak in 1801.
  • Mount Block is named after the salt crystals that are found under the mountain, found in shapes similiar to cubes and blocks.
  • In Apennise, some of the Mountains, Rivers and even one of the Regions and the Currency have different names, here's a list of the differences.

  1. Some parts of this section may not have really happened, most of the real story of what happened on Azalea Island is currently a mystery, the only information we have comes from the Book of Azaleas.
  2. Which is a play on words since in Christianity there is the pastor, since the believers would be a flock of sheep that must be guided on the right path, so in Azaelism there is the Gardener who takes care of the flowers, or the Azaelists, and tries to keep them safe.
