The Grand Corporation of The Iron Crown Order is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the CEO with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.816 billion Corporation Employes are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charon Hive. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Iron Crown Orderian economy, worth a remarkable 4,841 trillion Marks of Credit a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 409,712 Marks of Credit, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

75% of the words in government-funded "Super Fun Maths Games" are probably inaccurate, the nation's soldiers often believe they're in the Air Force, the Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition, and teenage girls worry that they'll be unpopular if their skirts aren't short enough. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Iron Crown Order's national animal is the Mythical Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Militant Atheism.

The Iron Crown Order is ranked 6,151st in the world and 63rd in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 59.78 Whatever.
