Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Albertinum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Primus Inter Pares with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 12.408 billion Albertinumians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barbarossa. The average income tax rate is 49.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Albertinumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,608 trillion Novios a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,621 Novios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-government web sites are springing up, the nation's leading climatologists are investigating animal flatulence in efforts to reduce methane emissions, all guns must be registered, and the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists. 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.

Albertinum is ranked 4,904th in the world and 59th in Europe for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,759.27 Tourists Per Hour.
