This has happened to me too:

I liked the idea of Alcatraz as a black hole when this map was in development, but surely many games will end with someone stuck there - which whilst very funny isn't exactly fun.

Not really. If your last country is Alcatraz, you lost no matter what.

That's just showing you that everyone can attack it. The script doesn't really understand one way borders.

no chance of parole obviously. :-P just avoid getting in that situation if it looks like it might happen to you. and if you're down to one country you're 99% not going to win anyways.
