The Monarchaic Factory of N2 Gas is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jones Comfort with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 5.428 billion Aloneans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elemental City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.3%.

The very strong Alonean economy, worth 336 trillion Latinums a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,082 Latinums, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas, there's a lot of babies crying for milk in the middle of the day, church and state are inseparable in their influence on education, and the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. N2 Gas's national animal is the Sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Laws of Nature.

N2 Gas is ranked 38,967th in the world and 1st in The Land of Musical Notes for Most Patriotic, with 23.6 flags saluted per person per day.
