OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The People's Republic of Metal People is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.316 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on the Environment, although Education and Law & Order 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 20%, 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.

Vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, anti-environmentalist protesters are gunned down without mercy, almost all of Metal People's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, and terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums. 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 14th in Michigan and 113,884th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -16 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
