The Republic of Isla Alcyon is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 343 million Alcyonians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 18.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Isla Alcyonian economy, worth 30.1 trillion alcedins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,840 alcedins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color", boys are forced to pair off for the school disco slow dance as the girls are all staying at home, Isla Alcyonian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader, and the country is rumored to be a Brancalandian puppet state. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Isla Alcyon's national animal is the kingfisher, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Isla Alcyon is ranked 72,376th in the world and 854th in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 1,872.21 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
