The Red Coalition of Alcala-Cordel is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nikolia with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.731 billion Alcali enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nicosia. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Alcali economy, worth a remarkable 1,070 trillion iwas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 186,718 iwas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, sex changes are routinely performed at Alcala-Cordel's hospitals, the pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, and any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property. Crime is totally unknown. Alcala-Cordel's national animal is the Salamander, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Alcala-Cordel is ranked 9,042nd in the world and 5th in The DankLeft Commune for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 419.74 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
