The Commonwealth of Alcatrazin is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Daisy Karlington with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 11.129 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 Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canberra. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Alcatrazinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,844 trillion Alcatrats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 255,636 Alcatrats, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Glamping Alcatrazians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, the serf suggestion box would work better if more serfs were literate, the Holy Office of the Inquisition is the highest court in the land, and a flood of mandatory divorces burden the courts. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The First Christian Church of Alcatrazin.

Alcatrazin is ranked 51,985th in the world and 17th in The Republic Nations for Largest Black Market, with 879 billion Standard Monetary Units.
