The Exarchate of French Albania is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Seraphin Makroleon with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, digital currency, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.438 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 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arbanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,237 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 342,986 freks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, many friends and relatives of Seraphin Makroleon have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, Agde has become the number one destination for urban exploration in Wintreath, and cities are engulfed by smog. 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 558th in the world and 2nd in Wintreath for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 1,006.22 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
