The State Security Apparatus of Iron Felix is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Felix Dzerzhinsky with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.614 billion Iron Felix are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wherever Felix is. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 86.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Iron Felix economy, worth a remarkable 6,798 trillion New Yeldan Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 229,562 New Yeldan Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 807,451 per year while the poor average 47,283, a ratio of 17.1 to 1.

Jails have become colloquially known as 'vampire houses', the world outside is only known of in folklore, the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form, and otherwise healthy people are being sent to internment camps because they have VODAIS. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iron Felix's national animal is the WA Gnome, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Stalinism.

Iron Felix is ranked 23,124th in the world and 4th in Antarctic Oasis for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 3,382.2 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
