The Great Sprawling Cradle of Ironsatan is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Sovran United-Populus Entity Routine with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.119 billion Numbers 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, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nest-Layer 00. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Number economy, worth a remarkable 2,959 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 364,455 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,372,350 per year while the poor average 67,491, a ratio of 20.3 to 1.

Colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Number Liberator", foreign governments are looking into weaponizing the infamous Number bee, tens of thousands of Numbers rock the night away at the annual SuperLob, and debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ironsatan's national animal is the Nest Crawler, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The True Third Law.

Ironsatan is ranked 3,578th in the world and 27th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Largest Governments, scoring 44.38 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
