The Mechanicum of The Dwarven Ironhills is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Forge-Lord Aggrond Blackhand with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, strictly enforced bedtime, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.616 billion Dwarves 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 is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Healthcare, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ironforge. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.8%.

The strong Dwarven economy, worth a remarkable 1,001 trillion Iron Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 178,375 Iron Marks, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Smoking is banned in public areas, the only way to escape lengthy prison terms is in a body bag, international trade is a sticky issue, and it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Dwarven Ironhills's national animal is the Ram, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Dwarven Ironhills is ranked 169,162nd in the world and 48th in The Dank Meme Alliance for Least Corrupt Governments, with 16.71 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
