The Republic of Albertinum is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Primus Inter Pares with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 16.019 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barbarossa. The average income tax rate is 62.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Albertinumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,083 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 130,070 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 38,873rd in the world and 244th in Europe for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 70.62 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
