The Republic of Tropico Isla de Hierro is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by El Presidente with an iron fist, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 13.92 billion Tropicans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Santa Helena. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tropican economy, worth a remarkable 5,378 trillion Tropican Pesos a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 386,410 Tropican Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, only native-born Tropicans who have never left the nation are permitted to run for office, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tropico Isla de Hierro's national animal is the Llama, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

Tropico Isla de Hierro is ranked 994th in the world and 1st in The Anarnkhos Archipelago for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 10,853.1 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
