OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Albertinum is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Primus Inter Pares with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 9.291 billion Albertinumians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barbarossa. The average income tax rate is 69%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Euthanasia is legal, the ABI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby. Crime is totally unknown. Albertinum's national animal is the Waalgiraffe, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Novio.

Albertinum is ranked 39th in Europe and 2,828th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 32 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
