The United Andover Kingdom of Great Brihley and North Hiltonia, commonly known as the Andover Kingdom, is a country situated in the north of Antarephia, north of Hiltonia, east of Engden, and west of Woolonia. Other areas west of the Andover Kingdom remain un-claimed. North of the Andover Kingdom lies the Saanich Sea, named after the aboriginal tribes who first discovered the land of the Andover Kingdom in the 2nd century. Across the Saanich Sea lies the Thul Republic; relations between the two countries lay stagnant after a failed attempt to construct a bridge across the Saanich Strait in 1957.

The largest city in the Andover Kingdom is Langham, situated at the western edge of County East, near its north-western border with County West, just south of the Saanich Sea. The capital is Christhcurch, situated in the northern reaches of County North on the Brihley Peninsula. Politically, the Andover Kingdom is a constitutional monarchy with parliamentary system of governance. The current Monarch is Queen Christine IV, in power since 1983. Among nations, the Andover Kingdom is a collapsed power. Once very powerful, it has since lost many of its claimed territories, and therefore, world control. The Andover Kingdom was the founding member of the now-defunct Nations of Power, which collapsed after a series of wars in the early 20th century. Since the wars and the collapse, the nation has kept a steady roll in global politics, while remaining neutral in most conflicts.

The Andover Kingdom is situated in North Antarephia. The nation is predominantly rolling hills with one mountain range, named the Andrews Range, itself situated parallel to the border with the unclaimed nations east of the Andover Kingdom. The climate of the Andover Kingdom is a temperate season climate. The Winter is mild and rainy closer to the Saanich Sea, but colder and snowier the farther inland one goes. The Summer is very warm, particularly closer to Lake Mannassas in County South.

Recently, the Kingdom has launched the "Roads to Prosperity" act. This has pardoned nearly $150 billion ADS (~$200 billion USD) towards road construction over the next two decades. This period of construction is expected to massively improve movement about the country.
