The Exarchate of French Albania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Seraphin Makroleon with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, vat-grown people, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 14.103 billion Arbanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Agde. The average income tax rate is 92.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arbanian economy, worth a remarkable 6,304 trillion freks 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 black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. 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 amazing 447,050 freks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, international terrorists often get their weapons supply in French Albania, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. French Albania's national animal is the Kairosean Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Massilian Mysteries.

French Albania is ranked 243,395th in the world and 345th in Wintreath for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 12.99 Whatever.
