The Ploof Ploof of Albiorix is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Casimir Loren Halifax with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.319 billion Albiorixites enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adrastea. The average income tax rate is 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Albiorixite economy, worth a remarkable 2,853 trillion Denars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 199,261 Denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', every workday begins with group therapy, and citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Albiorix's national animal is the Albatross, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Confucianism.

Albiorix is ranked 67,051st in the world and 14th in International Northwestern Union for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.59 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
