The ᶦᶦ of Als Used Part Shop is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by ᴳˡᵒʳᶦᵒᵘˢ ᴳᵒᵈ ᴸᵉᵃᵈᵉʳ with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.159 billion Loyal Customers 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Als Refurbished Machine Shop. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Loyal Customer economy, worth a remarkable 1,146 trillion Broken Lawnmowers 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, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 275,746 Broken Lawnmowers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism, train stations can be 'armful places, the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists, and all footpaths have tollbooths. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Als Used Part Shop's national animal is the Thrown Rock, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Sales.

Als Used Part Shop is ranked 169,759th in the world and 52nd in The Dank Meme Alliance for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 14.76 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
