The Allied States of The Iron Lions is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Father Lionel Atrox with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, lack of airports, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.711 billion Iron Lions are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — 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 227 trillion Lionisian Crowns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,911 Lionisian Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups, many friends and relatives of Father Lionel Atrox have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, and terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums. 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 173,596th in the world and 9,364th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -13.82 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
