The Bizarre Adventures of Aldion is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Elizabeth Alshire with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.457 billion Aldionians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Aldion. The average income tax rate is 23.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aldionian economy, worth a remarkable 1,063 trillion Alandors a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 238,686 Alandors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, the ABI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, fireworks and other big bangs are forbidden during the newest public holiday, and baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward. Crime is totally unknown. Aldion's national animal is the Grey Vield, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Solairian.

Aldion is ranked 77,140th in the world and 4,083rd in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 19.19 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
