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 deadly medical pandemics, aversion to nipples, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 36.742 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 24,678 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 671,665 gils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,164,878 per year while the poor average 23,391, a ratio of 220 to 1.

Babysitters are a thing of the past, politicians literally speak literally, conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors, and six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion. 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 24th in the world and 1st in Supremacy for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 81,439.61 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
