The Hermit Kingdom of Iron Soviet is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Axel II with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.51 billion Iron Peoples are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iron Citadel. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iron People economy, worth 601 trillion soviet coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 239,771 soviet coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Social care for the elderly consists of a self help leaflet and a kick on the backside, children are sent to either religious or secular schools, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, and the nation won three wars against Brancaland this weekend. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iron Soviet's national animal is the Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Orthodox Christianity.

Iron Soviet is ranked 72,381st in the world and 536th in 10000 Islands for Rudest Citizens, with 61 insults per minute.
