The Andorian Empire was the Andorian state and a founding member of the United Federation of Planets in 2161. The capital world of the Andorian Empire was Andoria. It spanned the Andorian system and included other planets such as Weytahn.
The Andorian Empire was a parliamentary government, led by a chancellor. The Andorian chancellor maintained diplomatic relations with the Aenar race, following their contact in the early-22nd century. (ENT: "The Aenar")
In the Star Trek: Typhon Pact novel Paths of Disharmony, the Andorian government formally secedes from the Federation in 2382 following the controversy over revelations made by the Tholians that the Federation classified records roughly a century prior that the Andorians would come to believe possibly held a key to aiding them in a reproductive crisis brought on by the need for four genders to procreate. The crisis had been exacerbated by the Federation's war with the Borg, and the subsequent damage to Andor, that was the focus of the Star Trek: Destiny trilogy.
