The Republic of Albertinum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Primus Inter Pares with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 11.065 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 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 47.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Albertinumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,388 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 125,487 Novios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, towns that stop turning a profit are turned into animal sanctuaries, the government takes agricultural advice from a wasp-themed superhero, and all footpaths have tollbooths. Crime is relatively low. Albertinum's national animal is the Waalgiraffe, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
