The Hole Digger of Alos Hole is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its burgeoning snake population. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 11.688 billion Alos Holeans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 33.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Alos Holean economy, worth 256 trillion Euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 21,920 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alos Hole's national animal is the snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alos Hole is ranked 134,298th in the world and 18th in The Hole for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,335.68 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
