Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Commonwealth of Alcatrazin is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Marcus Absent with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The hard-working, devout population of 7.146 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 63.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Alcatrazinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,329 trillion Alcatrats a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 186,068 Alcatrats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 5th in Alliance Of Armed Nations and 7,510th in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 33 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
