Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Albertinum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Primus Inter Pares with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 11.797 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 government prioritizes Education, although Environment and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barbarossa. The average income tax rate is 56.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Albertinumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,438 trillion Novios a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 121,937 Novios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Shops were recently ransacked as cigarettes returned to the shelves, traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Waalgiraffeball fields. Crime is relatively low. Albertinum's national animal is the Waalgiraffe, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Albertinum is ranked 274th in Europe and 76,254th in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 16 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
