The Republic of Tropico Isla de Hierro is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by El Presidente with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.297 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 60.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tropican economy, worth a remarkable 4,413 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. Average income is an amazing 358,909 Tropican Pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Cities are engulfed by smog, billions of Tropican Pesos are being blown on orbital weapons development, school uniforms are compulsory, and patriots insist that size does matter. 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 203,859th in the world and 3rd in The Anarnkhos Archipelago for Most Primitive, scoring -567.96 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
