The Phantasmagoria of Albrook is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ill'haress Aurora Yukihime with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ban on automobiles, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.234 billion Albrookians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illuminé. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Albrookian economy, worth a remarkable 1,386 trillion Brozoufs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 85,380 Brozoufs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors, Ill'haress Aurora Yukihime panders to nontraditional families, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, and the "fire department" is often called to remove offensive religious texts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Albrook's national animal is the Butterfly, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Phys.

Albrook is ranked 128,460th in the world and 108th in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Extreme, scoring 14.93 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
