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 notable for its anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 14.957 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, Healthcare, and Public Transport 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 58.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Albertinumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,971 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 131,782 Novios, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise, unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves, and contestants on Albertinum's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent. Crime is well under control. Albertinum's national animal is the Waalgiraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Albertinum is ranked 22,704th in the world and 255th in Europe for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 96.54 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
