The Marauding Machines of Alorgaze is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Kaledrone X with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.848 billion Alorgazians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alorgan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Alorgazean economy, worth 430 trillion Agands a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 232,767 Agands, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 758,384 per year while the poor average 53,784, a ratio of 14.1 to 1.

The government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption, military spending recently hit a new high, the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alorgaze's national animal is the Gazian Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Alorgaze is ranked 130,035th in the world and 24th in Nation under the Falcon for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -2.34 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
