The Bank Robbing of Alias Jones is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alias Jones with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 28.688 billion Alias Jonesians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wyoming Territory. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Alias Jonesian economy, worth a remarkable 7,854 trillion Invisible Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 273,782 Invisible Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry, commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, and gigantic marble churches take up almost half the land area of small villages. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alias Jones's national animal is the Mole, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Mother Nature.

Alias Jones is ranked 1,752nd in the world and 6th in NationStates for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 15,519.5 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
