The Phantasmagoria of Albrook is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ill'haress Aurora Yukihime with an even hand, and renowned for its aversion to nipples, ban on automobiles, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.461 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 46.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Albrookian economy, worth a remarkable 1,286 trillion Brozoufs a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is 73,650 Brozoufs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anti-riot police are dispatched whenever two elderly ladies gather to complain that prices have increased, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation, and evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right. 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 4,344th in the world and 160th in The East Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 92.61 Bank.
