Andale Atoll is the island that Acton Lord used as his base of operations. Not technically a sovereign nation, it nevertheless stayed independent from any affairs but those which Acton Lord chose to involve himself in.
The island itself wanders from place to place and from ocean to ocean, though always in the tropics of the Western Hemisphere. Little exists aboveground, save a small castle and some sheep. Beneath the surface lies a labyrinth of warrens. These are occupied by the Gradgnomes, former graduate students stunted by years of toiling in dimly lit labs and cubicles who moved on to acting as Acton Lord's minions for course credit.
