The Most Serene Republic of Alphacon is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.889 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 4,580 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 420,626 Rubies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers, and all the playground's a stage for Secret Independent schoolchildren. 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 421st in the world and 1st in The Secret Natural Habitats for Most Pacifist, with 271.71 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
