|“||Love each other guys; I really need you to love each other. I really do wish we could go back to the days where we just saw each other as mappers. I'm not ashamed to love mapping. I love mapping, I do. I think we're all so many special people with so many backgrounds and the fact that we can come together everyday, and talk and share information is... it's incredible; it's a miracle. It's a miracle of the world.||„|

Georgios Andreas Andreou II (Greek: Γεώργιος Ανδρέας Ανδρέου [ʝeˈorʝios anˈðreas anˈðreu]; born December 3, 2002), anglicized and shortened as George Andreou, more commonly known by his mapping aliases Nibiru and YourFriendlyNeighbourhoodGeorge, is a Greek-Cypriot former lucan mapper and theorist. He joined the community in mid-2016 and began mapping in early 2017, until mid-2020, in where he left Mapperdonia.
George discovered mapping through Super LV's Alternate Future of the World: The Movie in September 2016, and initially subscribed to new edgy and countryball entertainist mappers such as Imperialis, Obscurium, and West Virginian, before devoting his entire attention to Second Wave Edge. He began mapping in 2017, and drove his story based on the characters, instead of the plot, which was the traditional approach at the time. He continued making Second Wave Edge content for years
George was the first theorist and helped pioneer the Edge, remaining devoted to it long after 2017. He adamantly supported nationiums and founded and owned the Diarchy, the first theorist community and currently the largest non-channel community.
While being an above-average mapper at best, George is often praised for his storytelling and dialogue. His best work is usually attributed to the advice he gives other mappers, the characters of Ravn and Avoria, and Shadow of the Crown.
George founded the Diarchy of Mapping, the Mapperdonian Station, The Mapping Wiki, and held a staff position in many other communities. His influence was almost entirely situated in Discord, and was a small mapper relatively, despite often considered to be the most influential member of Mapperdonia, and the most outreaching moderator of the Dark Ages.
In September 2016, George saw Super LV's Alternate Future of the World: The Movie, and was immediately interested in mapping. He renamed his channel to YourFriendlyNeighbourhoodGeorge on January 1, 2017, and attempted to branch off from gaming.
His first mapping video, The Pangean War | Episode 1: Empires Emerge was uploaded on January 22, 2017, and received mixed reviews. The Pangean War would continue and two more episodes were released. Despite Episode 4 being in production, and the entire series' plot up to Episode 15 being planned, due to a multitude of Premier Pro crashes, George lost interest and scrapped the series.
On May 15, 2017, George created the first episode of his new series, Alternate Future of the World, with help on the script from SkylarWeston. The first episode was received with generally positive reviews, and a 52-7 like-dislike ratio. However, there were many complaints about the poor resolution of the map and the similarities drawn to Imperialis and Proxima. He uploaded the first 6 episodes of AFOW in the time span of around 4 months and was met with generally good remarks.
The Sunset Mapping invited George to the Retribution collaboration, yet he recommended that he make a new channel to help him be detected more by other mappers. Thus, he created the channel Nibiru. The seventh episode was released on October 15, 2017, on the new channel.
Hiatus and Phase 2
After the seventh episode, George went on an indefinite hiatus in mapping. He instead focused on expanding the Diarchy and his Minecraft geo-political server Andromeda. On February 14, 2018, George lost all data on his computer and was eventually convinced to restart mapping when he got a new one.
Using a significantly better map of his series created by Korean Mapping, George uploaded Episode 8 of Alternate Future of the World on May 31, 2018. The critical acclaim he received encouraged him to make more, and he also began a new series, Alternate Future of Europe, on June 21, 2018, and joined the Mordake Doctrine.
On October 10, 2018, George and Frisia merged their channels and created Team Diarchy. Asmodeus joined them in December. However, only George continued to upload for the remainder of 2018. He continued with Alternate Future of the World and Alternate Future of Europe, and joined The Glorious Thirteen. YourFriendlyNeighbourhoodGeorge was striked, likely by Axis Mapper, and terminated on March 25, 2019 for unknown reasons. The strike was appealed and denied.

The Mapping Community
Theorizing and Birth of the Diarchy
On April 18, 2017, Proxima uploaded the tenth episode of his Alternate Future of the World. George uploaded a theory to what he assumed was the plot of the series. This began a trend known as Theorizing that spread throughout the community. During the 11th episode's release, another known theorist known as SkylarWeston, requested to collaborate on the series. The pair then made the Diarchy of Mapping.
Georgios Andreou was born in Larnaca, Cyprus, on December 3, 2002; the only survivor out of 2 other expected children. His family moved to Queens, New York, in early 2003, where he learned English as his first language. George's parents returned to Cyprus on July 7, 2007, and divorced on June 15, 2015.
George created Ggaming4u on June 16, 2013, originally meant to be a Minecraft and other Gaming Channel. His first video, Skyblock Warriors w/ Ggaming!, was uploaded on September 20, 2013, and prompted a schedule of daily uploads. Eventually, he began to branch out to other gaming content, such as Happy Wheels, QWOP, Riddle School, Stealing the Diamond, and more. Soon after, he began vlogs and comedy skits.
Political and Philosophical Viewpoints
George is apolitical. However, when he did express political opinions, he was a centrist, despite formerly having labeled himself a classic liberal and populist conservative. He was also an aggressive direct democrat.
George is against abortion, supports gay marriage and is a cultural psychoanalyst, whereas in political views he is a Eurosceptic, Metaxist and supports Donald Trump's policies and the Greek party Golden Dawn's National Plan. Despite this, George is not a patriot and admits to atrocities committed by Greece.
George's philosophy is characterized by hard nihilism. He argues that humanity has no intrinsic value, and will ultimately lead to its own demise, thanks in part to the technological singularity, therefore it must return to a state of anarcho-privitism to avoid extinction. This "ideology" was dubbed Resetism.
