Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Albertinum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Primus Inter Pares with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 14.4 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, with Environment, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, 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 55.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Albertinumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,914 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 132,972 Novios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Albertinumian language, personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed. Crime is relatively low. Albertinum's national animal is the Waalgiraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Albertinum is ranked 3,745th in the world and 56th in Europe for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.62 Years.
