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 complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.875 billion Metal Peopleans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metal People City. The average income tax rate is 41%, 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.

Metal People's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, army rations are served on silver platters, the nation refuses to provide international aid, and the richest citizens live in sheltered private citadels. 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 4th in Michigan and 117,252nd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -557 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
