Andoran can best be summed up to newcomers as "the American colonies during the Revolutionary War", as everything from the common clothing styles to the emphasis on yeomen farmers to the deep-seated individual commitment to freedom are evocative of that time period. The inside front cover is an attractive, full-color map of Andoran, while the inside back cover is a reproduction of the cover but without the title or logo. The contents of the book are divided into seven sections. Section 1 is a thirteen-page overview of Andoran.

The nation is separated from its western neighbor, the empire of Cheliax , by the Aspodell Mountains. Under the command of General Khastalus of Corentyn , the native peoples were put to the sword and Andoran became the westernmost province of the great Taldan Empire. The coastal city of Augustana was founded the same year, and the new invaders quickly began felling the trees of the extensive Arthfell Forest to feed the rapidly expanding Imperial Navy.
By AR , nearly all Taldan vessels were built in Augustana. The rise of the Andoren navy and shipping industry began a new golden age of exploration for Taldor, eventually leading to the founding of colonies not only in Avistan and Garund , but also far-away Azlant and Arcadia.
In order to launch its disastrous Sixth Army of Exploration , the Taldan government conscripted thousands of local Andoren militia members, and sent them off on commandeered ships to Garund. The move was prompted by Aspex the Even-Tongued of Cheliax , who sought to add the region to his fledgling empire in what would become known as the Even-Tongued Conquest. Despite its economic success, the nation still had its share of challenges: hobgoblin attacks in the northwestern wilderness, pirates on the open seas, druidic and fey troubles in the Arthfell and Verduran Forests , and disrupted trade with its colonies in Arcadia.
Andoran prospered as a part of the empire of Cheliax until AR. There was only so much obedience to Egorian that the Andoren people could stomach. The act safeguarded not only the legal rights of citizens, but also enshrined a progressive economic emancipation. Andoran continues to embody these ideals to this day, concepts they attempt to force upon other nations with what many feel to be idealistic and imperialistic fanaticism.
The gift was incorporated into the Archstone Monument and placed near the western end of the Field of Concord in Almas. Additionally, every major guild in the nation is also granted a representative. This individual serves primarily as an adviser to the Supreme Elect. The nation even exhibits a willingness to bring its military might to bear when no other means of accomplishing this goal remain.
These abolitionist ideals continue to this day, with the Andoren government forbidding any trade in sentient creatures, as well as sending out agents to undermine slavery abroad. This brings Andoran into conflict with the primary states supporting slavery in the Inner Sea region , particularly Cheliax , Katapesh , Osirion , and Thuvia.
Because of this, Andorens in general are seen as troublemakers abroad. When the Gray Corsairs sank three of these ships the following year , it began what some call the Andoren War Against Slavery. Artifacts and resources originating in exotic locations such as Osirion , the Mwangi Expanse , and even Azlant and Arcadia are gathered and sold. These goods are sometimes rare, often difficult to locate and obtain, and many groups fight one another to possess them; despite the risks involved, these items generate significant wealth for Andoran.
Competition in this field has also been growing with the neighboring states of Cheliax and Taldor. That said, almost all Andorens share certain beliefs in common. Arguments and discussions should be based on merit, rather than half-truths or falsehoods. All people have a right to have their voice heard, and one should be judged by their actions above all else. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, so long as it is not actually that of a foreign power.
By embracing and preserving these beliefs and others like them, the people of Andoran hope to ensure Common Rule , and the freedom it brings, for many generations to come.
