The Colored Republic of Alcatrazin is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Penultimo with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.472 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 Tourism industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology.

Politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, cars are banned from built-up areas, and the Hanging Gardens account for half of Cirrus City's water use. 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 2nd in Alliance Of Armed Nations and 4,338th in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 9 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
