OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The People's Republic of Metal People is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its strong anti-business policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.727 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, moralistic, 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 38%, 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.

All citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security", and TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas. 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 119,155th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -61 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
