The Empire of Fallen Iron Duke is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, parental licensing program, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 687 million Fallen Iron Dukeans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iron Dukegrad. The average income tax rate is 44.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fallen Iron Dukean economy, worth 105 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 153,301 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, a massive campaign is underway to ensure the race of Fallen Iron Duke remains pure, the rich tend their gardens inside gated urban farming communities, and well-off serial killers write monthly checks to avoid jail time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fallen Iron Duke's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Fallen Iron Duke is ranked 10,080th in the world and 186th in the West Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 305.39 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
