The Allied States of The Iron Lions is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by Father Lionel Atrox with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 933 million Iron Lions are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Father Lion's Hall. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Iron Lionisian economy, worth 134 trillion Lionisian Crowns a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,421 Lionisian Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Moonshine has made a resurgence, the nation's image rights are the strictest in the world, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, and ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Iron Lions's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Iron Lions is ranked 137,425th in the world and 7,291st in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -6.24 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
