The Phantasmagoria of Albrook is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ill'haress Aurora Yukihime with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and national health service. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.549 billion Albrookians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illuminé. The average income tax rate is 47.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Albrookian economy, worth 906 trillion Brozoufs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 66,907 Brozoufs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Multilingual concierges man empty inner city apartment blocks, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, and rabbits are known to spontaneously explode without warning. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 54,252nd in the world and 99th in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 2,363.18 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
