The Republic of Alcycone is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 543 million Alcyconeans 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alcyconean Battle Cat Base. The average income tax rate is 65.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Alcyconean economy, worth 56.1 trillion Guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 103,384 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The dwindling faithful in the nation make expensive pilgrimages to the remaining places of worship, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, and seats at the back of the bus are reserved for homosexuals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alcycone's national animal is the Battle Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Alcycone is ranked 21,370th in the world and 4th in Yessian Farlands for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,350.48 Tourists Per Hour.
