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 fear of technology, ritual sacrifices, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 39.401 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 dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. 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 27,128 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 688,523 gils, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,788,173 per year while the poor average 34,483, a ratio of 138 to 1.

Chicken farmers must rise before the sun every day to gag their cockerels, mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, and the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources. 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 259,802nd in the world and 1st in Supremacy for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -418 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
