Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The People's Republic of Metal People is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.28 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.

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 924 trillion pieces of metal 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 126,967 pieces of metal, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists, and factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas. 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 5th in Michigan and 122,615th in the world for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
