Alberta

One of the ten federal provinces of modern day Canada. Considered the most politically right-wing province, it is home to valuable oil deposits. Named for Princess Louise Caroline Alberta, Queen Victoria's daughter, whose husband was once Canada's governor general and liked naming places after his wife. Alberta is at the interchange from the Canadian Great Plains to the Rockies.

The capital is Edmonton, home to the best shopping mall EVER (whose food hall is the sole territory of the Restored Roman Empire), while to the south is Calgary, noted for the Winter Olympics in 1980-whatever it was. To the west in the Rockies lie Banff and Jasper, where you can get eaten by a bear free of charge. Thande once met Doctor What at Jasper railway station.

Also possesses places with amusing names such as Medicine Hat, Head-Smashed-In-Buffalo-Jump, and the town of Vulcan, which has been turned into a Star Trek theme park.

RCAF Brat lived here for most of his life, prior to a move to Atlantic Canada, this would explain why he often defies the usual “Canadian stereotypes”.
