The strong Iron-Blooded economy, worth 31.2 trillion Bottle Caps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 60,287 Bottle Caps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Iron-Blooded Ones's national animal is the Inuyasha, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
