Aluminum Oxynitride

Population3.509 billion

LeaderMoe Elsass


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, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.509 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 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alonean economy, worth 554 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 158,035 Bricks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's been a banner year for local vexillology, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. 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 168,736th in the world and 1,434th in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 77.8 billion Standard Monetary Units.
