The Hermit Kingdom of Iron Soviet is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Axel II with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.531 billion Iron Peoples are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iron Citadel. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Iron People economy, worth a remarkable 1,341 trillion soviet coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 295,980 soviet coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Colonial subjects have Iron People culture shoved down their throats, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, the derisively named "Morlocks of Moria" futilely demand time in the sun, and truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iron Soviet's national animal is the Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Iron Soviet is ranked 111,285th in the world and 538th in 10000 Islands for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,206.67 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
