We welcome The Republic of Fascist Albertistan (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=Fascist+Albertistan), as the 237th member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Republic of Fascist Albertistan is a tiny, economically powerful nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5 million are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Social Welfare and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. Income tax is unheard of. A substantial private sector is dominated by the Retail industry.
Crime is a serious problem. Fascist Albertistan's national animal is the roughneck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the dollaru.
