The Duchy of Albynau is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.212 billion Albynauans 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 tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alau. The average income tax rate is 11.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Albynauan economy, worth a remarkable 1,558 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 169,200 marks, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

More than one company makes the board game Monopoly, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, it isn't only obsequious grandees who produce a lot of manure at state occasions, and parents seeking custody have to write a five-thousand word analysis of their child's imaginary friend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Albynau's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Albynau is ranked 159,970th in the world and 179th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 11.85 Effective Tax Rate.
