The Red Heart of Albrook is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ill'haress Aurora Yukihime with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 17.921 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 48.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Albrookian economy, worth a remarkable 1,301 trillion Brozoufs a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 72,607 Brozoufs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political candidates recite daily pledges of loyalty to their chosen party, Ill'haress Aurora Yukihime tells rebellious ministers to "drop and give me twenty", enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. 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 965th in the world and 28th in The East Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4,438.53 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
