The Holy Factory of Aluminum Oxynitride is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Moe Elsass with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.528 billion Aloneans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burlington. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alonean economy, worth 558 trillion Bricks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,336 Bricks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In a desperate bid for cheap airfare Aloneans can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Aluminum Oxynitride, politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, and Alonean police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Aluminum Oxynitride's national animal is the Puppy, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Tolerance.

Aluminum Oxynitride is ranked 17,836th in the world and 276th in the West Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 2,426.58 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
