OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The People's Republic of Metal People is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.119 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."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metal People City. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Metal Peoplean economy, worth 919 trillion piece of metals a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 129,184 piece of metals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Metal People, and there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive. Metal People's national animal is the animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.

Metal People is ranked 1st in Michigan and 14,589th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 46 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
