The Republic of Albascot is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its national health service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.175 billion Albascotians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edimbourg. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Albascotian economy, worth 203 trillion Albascotian Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,404 Albascotian Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Albascotians, flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug, the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", and it's never "just a game" with Albascotian sports fans. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Albascot's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Albascot is ranked 155,104th in the world and 180th in Enadia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -100.95 on the Hayek Index.
