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 hatred of cheese. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.37 billion 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 juggles the competing demands of Defence, the Environment, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metal People City. The average income tax rate is 67%, and even 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.

The public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Metal People Blood Tithe, and children deemed 'disorderly' or otherwise unfit for public schools are shipped off to military academies. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. 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 8th in Michigan and 122,902nd in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with -94 Whatever.
