The Royal Commonwealth of Albian is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Drinarius with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service, compulsory military service, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.545 billion Albians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goldport. The average income tax rate is 13.0%.

The powerhouse Albianic economy, worth 139 trillion Gold Lions a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 90,513 Gold Lions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

The institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced, economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, schoolboys trained in chivalry are encouraged to duel other boys for a maiden's hand, and Drinarius has just been declared ruler of Albian in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Albian's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Albian is ranked 66,845th in the world and 29th in The Empire of Mare Nostrum for Highest Economic Output, with 139 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
