The Empire of Fallen Iron Duke is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Vittorio with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.256 billion Fallen Iron Dukeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iron Dukegrad. The average income tax rate is 89.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Fallen Iron Dukean economy, worth 715 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 219,697 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, Fallen Iron Dukeans refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, people say chess victor Vittorio can kill you with mind-bullets, and a historic rise in the minimum wage has crushed the economy with inflation. 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, and its national religion is Vittorioism.

Fallen Iron Duke is ranked 225,376th in the world and 6,001st in the West Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.17 weapons per person.
