The Supreme Dictatorship of The Iron League is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Universal Ruler with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, infamous sell-swords, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 32.796 billion Iron Leaguerans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. 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 21,050 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 641,852 gils, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,031,054 per year while the poor average 80,542, a ratio of 37.6 to 1.

Children get arrested for floating paper boats on lakes, street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, new "Worker's Strike" laws set out who is allowed to strike a worker, and the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups. 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 7th in the world and 1st in Supremacy for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 62,893.93 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
