OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The People's Republic of Metal People is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.528 billion Metal Peopleans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with the Environment, although Law & Order and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metal People City. The average income tax rate is 24%, but much higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Survivors receive aid from only the most environmentally-friendly transport, the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, thieves are flogged in public for their crimes, and citizens must pay to enjoy Metal People's pristine beaches. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Metal People's national animal is the animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the piece of metal.

Metal People is ranked 11th in Michigan and 96,866th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 30 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
