The Allied States of The Iron Lions is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Father Lionel Atrox with an even hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, digital currency, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 7.725 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Father Lion's Hall. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Iron Lionisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,186 trillion Lionisian Crowns a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,588 Lionisian Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, and a degree of self-hatred is vital for a future in politics. 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 16,296th in the world and 621st in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 15,970.09 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
