The Allied States of The Iron Lions is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Father Lionel Atrox with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.321 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 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Iron Lionisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,111 trillion Lionisian Crowns a year, is highly 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 151,849 Lionisian Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, people who have never eaten chicken are told it tastes a bit like crocodile, every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government, and citizens compete to guess the time between the royal lady's contractions. 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 3,725th in the world and 213th in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,137.73 Tourists Per Hour.
