The Red Heart of Albrook is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ill'haress Aurora Yukihime with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The cheerful, devout population of 18.141 billion Albrookians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illuminé. The average income tax rate is 49.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Albrookian economy, worth a remarkable 1,314 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 reasonably common. Average income is 72,438 Brozoufs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cash-strapped politicians frequently host bake sales to fund their campaigns, lending money has become a major liability, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and people in Albrook can die peacefully knowing that all their debts are paid. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 237,281st in the world and 8,327th in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 2.28 Obesity Rate.
