OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Queen's State of Alonga is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.249 billion Alongans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Social Welfare, although Education and Healthcare are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 73%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, voting is voluntary, none has been named as Alonga's national religion, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alonga's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is none, and its currency is the betale.

Alonga is ranked 509th in Japvia and 81,734th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with -15.8 Insults Per Minute (net).
