The Pirate Commonwealth of Albatraoz

Regional Influence: Squire
The Pirate Commonwealth of Albatraoz is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Pirate King Elbani with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.837 billion Albatraotians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albatraoz City. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Albatraotian economy, worth 171 trillion Pecoons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. Average income is 93,193 Pecoons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The only film released this month was "Atheistvengers: Scientific Literacy War", the government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?", violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, and the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard. Crime is totally unknown. Albatraoz's national animal is the Capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
