The Empire of Fallen Iron Duke is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Vittorio with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.132 billion Fallen Iron Dukeans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iron Dukegrad. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Fallen Iron Dukean economy, worth 471 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 221,351 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink, wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, and judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fallen Iron Duke's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Vittorioism.
