The Republic of Albeq is a large, genial nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 84 million Albeqians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 9.3%.

The strong Albeqian economy, worth 4.82 trillion Albeq-Thaecian Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is 57,402 Albeq-Thaecian Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, and prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Albeq's national animal is the Duck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Albeq is ranked 177,442nd in the world and 218th in Thaecia for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -5 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
