The Holy Lucky Red Factory Ghost of Aluminum Oxynitride is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Moe Elsass with a fair hand, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.303 billion ALONeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burlington. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient ALONean economy, worth 162 trillion gold bar bricks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,386 gold bar bricks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, babies are a small but significant export, most ambassadors from Aluminum Oxynitride retire only a few years after being appointed, and frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aluminum Oxynitride's national animal is the Ghost Leprechaun Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tolerance.

Aluminum Oxynitride is ranked 171,680th in the world and 6,976th in the West Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 19.76 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
