The Colored Republic of Alcatrazin is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Penultimo with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.661 billion Alcatrazians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cirrus City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Tourism and Information Technology.

Cirrus City spends billions upgrading public transport, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, the nation is reliant on the principle of mutually assured destruction to maintain its security, and third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alcatrazin's national animal is the Python, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is The First Christian Church of Alcatrazin, and its currency is the Alcatrat.

Alcatrazin is ranked 24th in Alliance Of Armed Nations and 82,900th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 42 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
