The Empire of Fallen Iron Duke is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 663 million Fallen Iron Dukeans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iron Dukegrad. The average income tax rate is 43.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fallen Iron Dukean economy, worth 99.6 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 150,265 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', legal contracts aren't worth the paper they're written on, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fallen Iron Duke's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Fallen Iron Duke is ranked 2,526th in the world and 31st in the West Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 9,724.04 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
