The Queen's State of Albey is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 11.907 billion Albeyians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.6%.

The thriving Albeyian economy, worth 499 trillion betales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Pizza Delivery, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 41,988 betales, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 121,602 per year while the poor average 11,489, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Military spending is on the increase, all tariffs have been abolished, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and Albey has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is a problem. Albey's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Albey is ranked 123,813th in the world and 8th in Saint Georges for Most Stationary, with 17.35799583532 Days.
