The People's Republic of Metal People is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 6.199 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 concentrates mainly on the Environment, although Education and Law & Order 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 18%, 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.

Prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, students and teachers are regularly stopped and searched for symbols of religious affiliation before class, women who display their ankles are shunned by society, and the police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime. 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 112,184th in the world for Safest, scoring -999.6 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
