The Bizarre Adventures of Aldion is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Elizabeth Alshire with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.719 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 21.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aldionian economy, worth 881 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. Average income is an amazing 237,098 Alandors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 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 4,983rd in the world and 149th in The North Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 179.1 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
