The Exarchate of French Albania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Seraphin Makroleon with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.998 billion Arbanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Agde. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arbanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,813 trillion freks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 346,737 freks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's some really clean windows in Arbanian houses, Seraphin Makroleon claims to know what infants are thinking, the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, and first-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. French Albania's national animal is the Kairosean Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Massilian Mysteries.

French Albania is ranked 91,626th in the world and 198th in Wintreath for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 56.86 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
