Hal Neuberg (24 June 1893 - 22 July 1959) was an Aloian politician who served as Chancellor of Aloia from 1949 to 1953 and Benjamin Hart's Vice Chancellor before that, from 1941 to 1949. Neuberg's term as Chancellor was marked by political scandal and economic recession and he is widely regarded as one of the most unfortunate Chancellors in Aloian history.

Neuberg was from Moorhead, Minnesota, and served as that city's mayor from 1936 to 1941. During the 1940 election he was chosen by Benjamin Hart to serve as Hart's running mate after Vice Chancellor Francis Jones retired. Hart was re-elected twice as Chancellor and Neuberg served for 8 years. After Hart announced his retirement at the end of his term, Neuberg was chosen as the Conservative candidate.

Neuberg narrowly won the 1948 election, defeating National Democratic Party candidate Roland Cook. Cook appealed the results and requested a recount. The official election review was completed in April 1949 and revealed that Cook had actually technically won by 300 votes. The Aloian legal community determined it was too late to change, however, because the King had already officially appointed Neuberg and he refused to change the appointment.

From there, Neuberg's approval ratings plummeted. Simultaneously, the Aloian economy crashed as a result of inflation of the Aloian dollar. Poor management of the situation by the Treasury Ministry made the crisis worse and resulted in massive riots in Minneapolis, Konza City, Zumbrota, and other major cities. In the fall of 1951, it was revealed that Neuberg's Vice Chancellor Ward Harris was having an affair with his secretary. Harris took his own life in November 1951.

Neuberg lost the 1952 election to Social Democrat Douglas Horn. His legacy was marked by the political scandals and economic crisis and he is, to this day, rated as one of the worst Chancellors Aloia ever had.
