Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Alonga is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 21.248 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 juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Alongan economy, worth 222 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 10,481 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary, none has been named as Alonga's national religion, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, and Alonga has designated Capital Heights as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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, and its national religion is none.

Alonga is ranked 104,386th in the world and 531st in Ancient Lands for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 838.3 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
