The Allied States of The Iron Lions is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Father Lionel Atrox with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 4.972 billion Iron Lions are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Father Lion's Hall. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Iron Lionisian economy, worth 730 trillion Lionisian Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,992 Lionisian Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The carbon footprint falls along with the human footprint during war, passwords to nuclear codes must now contain upper and lower case characters, Iron Lionisian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation, and the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Iron Lions's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Iron Lions is ranked 3,144th in the world and 106th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 10,403.59 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
