The Fortified Nation of Iron Dog is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ragnar Hatebreed with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.06 billion Iron Dogians 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Denver. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Iron Dogian economy, worth a remarkable 7,989 trillion gold coins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 379,353 gold coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,252,239 per year while the poor average 85,978, a ratio of 14.6 to 1.

Major cities run on potato batteries, the government has enacted freedom of information, one year's corporation tax from three international megacorporations has funded one dozen shiny black pencils for Ragnar Hatebreed's office, and the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Iron Dog's national animal is the Dire Wolve, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ęsir.

Iron Dog is ranked 218,488th in the world and 4th in Ravenclaw Coalition for Most Politically Free, scoring 12.29 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
