The Mind Coalescence of Empire of Iron is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Overmind Ferrok with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.081 billion Ironians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Great Iron Tower. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ironian economy, worth a remarkable 1,442 trillion Trading Components a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 283,996 Trading Components, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Empire of Iron's national animal is the Cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Lifeform Augment Program.

Empire of Iron is ranked 189,775th in the world and 127th in Eientei Gensokyo for Most Pro-Market, scoring -83.67 on the Rand Index.
