High Albania

Population998 million

CapitalNew Tirana

Animaldouble-headed eagle

The Red and Black League of High Albania is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Skanderbeg with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, rampant corporate plagiarism, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 998 million High Albanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Tirana. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient High Albanian economy, worth 103 trillion leks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,551 leks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, in a baffling press conference Skanderbeg proudly dismantled a broken door, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. Crime is totally unknown. High Albania's national animal is the double-headed eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

High Albania is ranked 216,227th in the world and 8,739th in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -7.48 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
