The Allied States of The Iron Lions is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Father Lionel Atrox with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and lack of airports. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 1.269 billion Iron Lions are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

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 94.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Iron Lionisian economy, worth 209 trillion Lionisian Crowns a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 165,170 Lionisian Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Father Lion's Hall Times is sold out, anti-government web sites are springing up, a division of tanks navigating "as the crow flies" has driven into a ravine, and anyone who so much as frowns risks being referred to a mental health unit. 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 7,470th in the world and 359th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 323.88 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
