Iron Heelland

The United States of Iron Heelland is a very large, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 191 million Iron Heellandians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.7%.

The powerhouse Iron Heellandian economy, worth 17.4 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Gambling. Average income is 91,270 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 509,684 per year while the poor average 8,143, a ratio of 62.6 to 1.

Selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, parents who fail mandatory parenting classes risk having their children taken away, hackers post hourly updates on international summits, and new "Worker's Strike" laws set out who is allowed to strike a worker. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iron Heelland's national animal is the Eagle.

Iron Heelland is ranked 38,048th in the world and 3rd in Yecyma for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 3,683.44 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
