The Great Sprawling Cradle of Ironsatan is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Sovran United-Populus Entity Routine with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.644 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, well-organized government is primarily concerned with 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. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Number economy, worth a remarkable 3,690 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 382,623 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Billions of Credits are spent to take high-quality photos of the Nest Crawler Nebula, vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, and The Sovran United-Populus Entity Routine signs the laws but abides by none of them. 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 14,301st in the world and 67th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,602.38 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
