The Republic of Albertinum is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Primus Inter Pares with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 10.483 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 government prioritizes Education, with Environment and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barbarossa. The average income tax rate is 47.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Albertinumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,249 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 119,230 Novios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, and politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter'. Crime is relatively low. Albertinum's national animal is the Waalgiraffe, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
