The Supreme Dictatorship of The Iron League is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Universal Ruler with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, fear of technology, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 36.242 billion Iron Leaguerans 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Iron League City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Iron Leaguer economy, worth an astonishing 24,203 trillion gils a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 667,829 gils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,344,230 per year while the poor average 19,492, a ratio of 274 to 1.

Supreme Universal Ruler has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, the "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, the booming slave trade is now government-funded, and museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts. 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 League's national animal is the lueshi, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Supreme Universal Rulerism.

The Iron League is ranked 232,420th in the world and 1st in Supremacy for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1.68 Tourists Per Hour.
