The Headbangin Nation of Metalopolis is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mies with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 21.388 billion Metalopolitians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metalopolis. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Metalopolisian economy, worth a remarkable 3,820 trillion plectrums a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 178,644 plectrums, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 785,533 per year while the poor average 25,520, a ratio of 30.8 to 1.

People all over Metalopolis are dying of 'Mad Drummer Disease', obesity is a thing of the past due to the nation's sickening cuisine, most academic research has ground to a halt, and women wear burqas to avoid unwanted male attention. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Metalopolis's national animal is the drummer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Monday.

Metalopolis is ranked 12,012th in the world and 9th in Middle East for Most Corrupt Governments, with 78.07 Kickbacks Per Hour.
