The Commonwealth of Alcatrazin is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Marcus Absent with an even hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, anti-smoking policies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.226 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 Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. The average income tax rate is 53.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Alcatrazinian economy, worth 913 trillion Alcatrats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 146,731 Alcatrats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The First Christian Church of Alcatrazin.

Alcatrazin is ranked 1st in Alliance Of Armed Nations and 5,241st in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
