The Republic of Albertinum is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Puppetmaster with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.529 billion Albertinumians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although the Environment and Healthcare are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albertinum City. The average income tax rate is 73%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Convicted murderers are free to walk the streets provided they attend rehabilitation classes, jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Puppetmaster's bedroom. Crime is totally unknown. Albertinum's national animal is the Griffin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Novio.

Albertinum is ranked 41st in Europe and 3,358th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 72 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
