The Lucky Gold Randomisation of Aleator is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Luke Rhinehart with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 9.435 billion Aleatorians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bedlam. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Aleatorian economy, worth a remarkable 2,397 trillion lucky golden fractals 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, quite specialized black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. 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 254,083 lucky golden fractals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Aleator, ships are encouraged to deliberately run aground onto Aleatorian beaches, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and many of the country's largest dumps can be seen from space. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aleator's national animal is the dicedog vampire bat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Chance.

Aleator is ranked 1,961st in the world and 3rd in Glass Gallows for Rudest Citizens, with 225.44 Insults Per Minute.
