Andany has a surface area of 2.641788 km² (664.64 acres) and a population of 8 full citizens, of whom all are territorial residents.
The Principality's form of government is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary system, defined by the Principality's constitution, the National Assembly.

The Principality's total size has been stable throughout its history, starting out with 0.015 km² as the District of Floriano in Andany when it was first founded in 2017. It went on to annex the current three states over the year, which are the only constant part of the Principality and terroitories. The majority of the Principality's area comes from the Sardinian coastline, a territory which covers a large coastal area. The Principality's current surface area is at 2.641788 km² (664.64 acres). With all its territory surrounded by Italy, French, Spanish, and Italian are the official languages of most Andanian citizens, and this is reflected in the fact that these are the Principality's official languages.
