The Federation of ALON 1 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Cernan with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, keen interest in outer space, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.933 billion Aloneans 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Qorana. The average income tax rate is 21.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Alonean economy, worth 349 trillion Bricks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,047 Bricks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government tries not to listen to the people unless it absolutely has to, retiring citizens are dragged away in the middle of the night by mysterious men in black suits, the new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep, and polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ALON 1's national animal is the Winged Spider, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Magic.

ALON 1 is ranked 38,674th in the world and 58th in Nihon for Most Developed, scoring 70.37 on the Human Development Index.
