Constitutional Amendments are also ratified by a super-majority vote of both houses and the respective two-thirds of the state and territorial governments assemblies and senates. Once ratified constitutional amendments become law and can only be repealed by constitutional amendment process.

The currency of Alora is the Aloran Talent (₮) (ISO currency code: ALT). The Talent is divided into 100 Sheks. Coins minted include 1-, 2-, 5-, 10-, 20- and 50- Shek coins and half-, and 1- Talent coins. Banknotes include 1-, 2-, 5-, 10-, 20-, 50-, 100-, and 200- Talent banknotes. 500-, 1000-, and 2000- banknotes are also in circulation but are rarely released from the treasury, the advent of electronic bank transfers, debit and credit cards and Wire transfers available for large monetary transfers has made the banknotes less needed. A 3 talent note was also in use until 2001 when it was retired, there are still many of these notes in circulation. Older od denominations include a 1/3 Talent coin and 15-, 25-, 75-, 125-, and 150- Talent banknotes which have also been permanently retired as they fell out of use and the number of banknotes was streamlined.
Cash Prices are expressed in decimals to two places (₮1.50) Some representatives in the Alora Legislature proposed a cashless system in 1985 but that proposal died in closed legislative sessions due to extreme opposition to the plan. There has been rumblings that some legislators are working in secret again to revive the plan under a different name and present it to the legislature again in 2020. Opposition is again expected to be strong and it is unsure if Alorans will ever be willing to give up their Physical currency.
Ebux is another form of currency circulated in Alora and it is a completely electronic bit based currency run by a private coalition of Aloran businesses to provide an alternate means of purchasing and currency for people in the southern Uletha. Ebux wallets are available on the internet and can be easily loaded or spent at participating merchants by scanning a target code.
The official religion of Alora is Known as The Way or the Christic Movement. Followers of this faith are known as "Followers". While the adoption of The Christic Movement as the official religion of Alora was established by the constitution it is only ceremonial in nature and the government offers no monetarily support nor does it collect any royalties, taxes, or tributes from churches or any other religious organization. while the government does not recognize other religious belief systems there is a policy that supports freedom of religion and they are generally tolerated with a very few exceptions (such as religious groups that would cause harm to life and property). Prior to this the "Christic Movement" had been made the official religion of the country but there were issues regarding its establishment as the official religion of the government and the government sought control of churches and church activities and used it as a source of generating revenue for the government during the years of monarchical reign (1599 to 1800) and the confiscation of church wealth during the 300 years of feudal government that proceeded that. These periods are known by Christic Followers as the "History of Wrongs" and lead to the current constitutional protections that exist for the Christic Movement and by default all other religions as well. Even though the government has officially recognized the Christic Movement as its official religion it has no power of enforcement or taxation upon churches or religious organizations.

- Aloran Expressway System
Alora has a system of highways and expressways that provide transportation for motor vehicles and commercial freight traffic. The most advanced system is the Aloran Expressway System which consists of a fully access-controlled grade-separated freeway system, most of which is toll-free with only limited toll crossings. Expressways are identified with the prefix "E-' before the route number (ie. E-45 or E-99). Sections of the Aloran Expressway System that have not been updated to freeway status are listed as trunk roads and identified by the prefix "A-" or "C-"before the route number such as A-5 or C-8 (depending on the stage of development) which when upgraded will eventually become E-5 once it is converted to a full freeway. Highways are numbered from E-10 in the north to E-90 in the south and E-15 in the west to E-95 in the east. Odd numbered highways travel north and south and even highways travel east and west. Highways E-1 through E-9 are diagonal highways that connect major cities or follow special important routes.
