The Black Lotus Sect of Iron Buddha is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory vegetarianism, and frequent executions. The compassionate population of 19.522 billion Siddhi enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Siddha economy, worth 139 trillion Wu Weis a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 7,164 Wu Weis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, the Iron Buddha Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and Iron Buddha has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iron Buddha's national animal is the Dark Immortal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Iron Buddha is ranked 44,283rd in the world and 3rd in Genesis Defense Project for Most Extreme, scoring 25.43 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
