The Oppressed Peoples of Ironfistan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ayub Mirzapur with an even hand, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, complete lack of public education, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 6.678 billion Ironfistanis are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Environment and Welfare not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mizjarabad. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ironfistanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,192 trillion rupees a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 328,263 rupees, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,054,856 per year while the poor average 3,205, a ratio of 953 to 1.

Travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, self-driving cars occasionally mow down pedestrians to avoid inconveniencing passengers, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and the Ironfistan Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ironfistan's national animal is the Ox, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ironfistan is ranked 1,031st in the world and 12th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 11,063.34 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
