Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Commonwealth of Alcatrazin is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Prime Minister Marcus Absent with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.42 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.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 55.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alcatrazinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,007 trillion Alcatrats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 156,906 Alcatrats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers are equipped with multi-million Alcatrat battlesuits, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, and citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alcatrazin's national animal is the Python, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The First Christian Church of Alcatrazin.

Alcatrazin is ranked 20th in Alliance Of Armed Nations and 39,542nd in the world for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 18 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
