The Allied States of The Iron Lions is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Father Lionel Atrox with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 2.232 billion Iron Lions are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded 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 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Iron Lionisian economy, worth 311 trillion Lionisian Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 139,609 Lionisian Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, sweet-toothed Iron Lions have been left penniless by the VAT on candy, the legislature keeps promising "more study" of corruption allegations against the parliamentary whip system, and the right to a fair trial was recently abolished for reasons of convenience. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 73,941st in the world and 4,157th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,076.26 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
