The Sultanate of Albania2
|Category: Iron Fist Consumerists|
Location: the South Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Sultanate of Albania2 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Skanderbeg 2 with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, infamous sell-swords, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.513 billion Albania2ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tirana 2. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Albania2ian economy, worth 218 trillion good boy points 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 impressive 144,628 good boy points, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.
Suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, all footpaths have tollbooths, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and homesickness is thought to be a waterborne illness. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Albania2's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Islam 2.
