The Iron Marauders

Population236 million


The Most Serene Republic of The Iron Marauders is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 236 million Pirates enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 15.1%.

The thriving Iron Marauderian economy, worth 16.4 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is 69,366 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

The Iron Marauders Barrier Island residents anxiously await their 'Bridge to Somewhere', judicial torture is outsourced overseas, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and sexually-starved male dinosaurs terrorise tourists during weekly breakouts from Mesozoic Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Iron Marauders's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Iron Marauders is ranked 122,860th in the world and 4,791st in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -3.46 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
