The Supreme Dictatorship of The Iron League is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Universal Ruler with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, avant-garde cinema, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 31.911 billion Iron Leaguerans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Iron League City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Iron Leaguer economy, worth an astonishing 20,388 trillion gils a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 638,923 gils, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,947,860 per year while the poor average 83,706, a ratio of 35.2 to 1.

Reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence, artists regularly face criminal charges and art-burning parties are common, and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Iron League's national animal is the lueshi, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Supreme Universal Rulerism.

The Iron League is ranked 3rd in the world and 1st in Supremacy for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 42,933.54 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
