Iron Cladia

CapitalSan Jose
LeaderBrown Tiger

CurrencyIron Cladia Dollar

The Federal Republic of Iron Cladia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Brown Tiger with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working population of 12.613 billion Iron Cladians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Jose. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iron Cladian economy, worth a remarkable 1,671 trillion Iron Cladia Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,546 Iron Cladia Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The arms industry is strictly regulated, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, ex-royals are being greeted by a whole new set of gestures, and the Violet Mile now refers to the long line-ups that former death row inmates wait in as they transfer to maximum security prisons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iron Cladia's national animal is the Cougar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Protestantism.

Iron Cladia is ranked 44,480th in the world and 1,768th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 3,076.45 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
