The Allied States of The Iron Lions is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Father Lionel Atrox with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, lack of airports, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 11.002 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — 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 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Iron Lionisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,706 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 155,095 Lionisian Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government spends billions to protect The Iron Lions from a disaster that is one in a million, terrorists who are 17th cousins with the ex-wives of half-brothers of citizens are now exempt from the immigration ban, the Iron Lionisian Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely, and blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour. 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 1,873rd in the world and 79th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 20,324.67 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
