The Ploof Ploof of Albiorix is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Casimir Loren Halifax with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, national health service, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 11.886 billion Albiorixites have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized 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 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Albiorixite economy, worth a remarkable 2,338 trillion Denars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 196,741 Denars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

It is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt, children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, Albiorixite husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and light entertainment isn't dead. Crime is totally unknown. Albiorix's national animal is the Albatross, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Confucianism.

Albiorix is ranked 21,468th in the world and 21st in International Northwestern Union for Most Secular, with 46.96 Atheism Rate.
