The People's Republic of Metal People is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.001 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although the Environment 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 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.

Newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, military spending is on the increase, the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Metal People with a very polite populace, and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. 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 97,464th in the world for Best Weather, with -42 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
