The Most Serene Republic of Alphacon is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, vat-grown people, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.66 billion Alphaconians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of White City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Secret Independent economy, worth a remarkable 5,487 trillion Rubies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 433,488 Rubies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Alphacon is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alphacon's national animal is the Monster, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Alphacon is ranked 13,334th in the world and 1st in The Secret Natural Habitats for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 6,056.72 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
