The Queen's State of Alonga is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, suspicion of poets, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 26.073 billion Alongans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Alongan economy, worth 273 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 10,481 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A major religion has been named as Alonga's national religion, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, Alonga has designated Capital Heights as its capital city, and The Governor has just been declared ruler of Alonga in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alonga's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alonga is ranked 122,212th in the world and 3rd in World for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 38.91 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
