The Exarchate of French Albania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Seraphin Makroleon with an iron fist, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.089 billion Arbanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Agde. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arbanian economy, worth a remarkable 6,275 trillion freks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 445,398 freks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, and graffiti graces every city's streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. French Albania's national animal is the Kairosean Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Massilian Mysteries.

French Albania is ranked 97,289th in the world and 127th in Wintreath for Most Extreme, scoring 19.72 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
