The Red Heart of Albrook is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ill'haress Aurora Yukihime with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, aversion to nipples, and hatred of cheese. The cheerful, devout population of 20.578 billion Albrookians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illuminé. The average income tax rate is 58.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Albrookian economy, worth a remarkable 1,582 trillion Brozoufs a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,916 Brozoufs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Heirs who take too long in the bathroom are declared missing and presumed dead, quiet professionalism has returned to the nation's armed forces, police escort anti-abortion activists to free speech cages if they try to express their views, and Illuminé's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 256,070th in the world and 9,758th in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -18.97 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
