Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of Alcatrazin is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Karlington with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 11.683 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 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Alcatrazinian economy, worth a remarkable 3,017 trillion Alcatrats a year, is broadly 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 258,269 Alcatrats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, and the internet has been placed under government control. 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 249th in the world and 1st in The Republic Nations for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
