The Armed Republic of Albionis Basileus is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Aelfred with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 945 million Albionis Basileusians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Legeceaster. The average income tax rate is 37.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Albionis Basileusian economy, worth 159 trillion Thrymsas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 168,786 Thrymsas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

The diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, and there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Albionis Basileus's national animal is the Gryphon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Albionis Basileus is ranked 10,007th in the world and 20th in The Kingdom of Great Britain for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 381.69 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
