The Supreme Dictatorship of The Iron League is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Universal Ruler with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, aversion to nipples, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 36.475 billion Iron Leaguerans 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Iron League City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Iron Leaguer economy, worth an astonishing 24,523 trillion gils a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 672,337 gils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,031,247 per year while the poor average 26,090, a ratio of 192 to 1.

Iron Leaguerans believe manners maketh the leader, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, and caps with skulls on them are the height of fashion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Iron League's national animal is the lueshi, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Supreme Universal Rulerism.

The Iron League is ranked 2,747th in the world and 1st in Supremacy for Largest Black Market, with 980 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
