The Republic of Albertinum is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Primus Inter Pares with a fair hand, and notable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 12.804 billion Albertinumians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barbarossa. The average income tax rate is 51.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Albertinumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,659 trillion Novios a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,645 Novios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Future leaders of Albertinum regularly dismiss pressing political issues when available options don't conform to their worldview, a Europe Tourist Association survey has rated Albertinum #1 for number twos, school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, and teenagers stay out into the wee hours of the morning "stargazing". Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Albertinum's national animal is the Waalgiraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
