The Phantasmagoria of Albrook is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ill'haress Aurora Yukihime with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.189 billion Albrookians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, 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 39.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Albrookian economy, worth 835 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 63,361 Brozoufs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, most Brozouf coins are riddled with bite marks, and the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb. 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 66,215th in the world and 77th in Eientei Gensokyo for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 39.41 Effective Tax Rate.
