The Allied States of The Iron Lions is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Father Lionel Atrox with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 6.86 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 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Iron Lionisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,051 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 153,335 Lionisian Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, posh kids don't look down on the poor any more, trespassers entering Father Lionel Atrox's office are immediately vaporized, and citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims. 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 20,647th in the world and 1,110th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 112.51 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
