The Colored Republic of Alcatrazin is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Penultimo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.836 billion Alcatrazians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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. The average income tax rate is 94%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology.

The automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, it is a crime to offend someone's religious beliefs, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons. 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 can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, its national religion is The First Christian Church of Alcatrazin, and its currency is the Alcatrat.

Alcatrazin is ranked 4th in Alliance Of Armed Nations and 7,904th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 7 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
