The Process State of The Albertan Empire is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Terminal 6A with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.63 billion Human Resources are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bunker 3432. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Empirean economy, worth a remarkable 8,350 trillion Canadian Tire Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 281,835 Canadian Tire Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,031,769 per year while the poor average 12,526, a ratio of 162 to 1.

Blocked storm drains cause sanitation problems, Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges, the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, and autumn landscape paintings feature men stripping leaves from bare branches with a vacuum. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Albertan Empire's national animal is the Prairie Oyster, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Terminal Maximus.

The Albertan Empire is ranked 1,754th in the world and 10th in Eladen for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 8,992.34 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
