The Supreme Dictatorship of The Iron League is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Universal Ruler with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 35.066 billion Iron Leaguerans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 aren't funded at all. 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 23,572 trillion gils a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 672,236 gils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,743,945 per year while the poor average 32,106, a ratio of 147 to 1.

Military doctrine says not to open fire until you see the "beady little eyes" of Johnny Foreigner, nations across the world are quick to praise Supreme Universal Ruler's good looks and intellectual prowess, stoogery and pratfalls are about as scathingly clever as Iron Leaguer humor gets, and the nation's first space rocket -- sponsored by Eckie-Ecola and shaped like an enormous soda bottle -- is being developed. 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 1,299th in the world and 1st in Supremacy for Lowest Crime Rates, with 145.92 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
