The Commonwealth of Alcatrazin is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Karlington with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 12.712 billion Alcatranians 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. The average income tax rate is 87.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alcatrazinian economy, worth a remarkable 3,277 trillion Alcatrats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 257,800 Alcatrats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, Prime Minister Karlington's Twitcher account is typically used to share Python memes rather than government policy, a rusted hulk in Canberra harbour has been voted the worst eyesore in The Republic Nations, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. 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 88,762nd in the world and 327th in The Republic Nations for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 438.04 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
