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 fear of technology, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 32.238 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 20,652 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 640,625 gils, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,976,241 per year while the poor average 82,867, a ratio of 35.9 to 1.

The backs of 'No Trespassing' signs were made for you and me, children's books regularly feature formerly distressed damsels suing their princes, the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, and Supreme Universal Ruler is described as an everyday person with normal tastes and the usual interests. 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 162,004th in the world and 2nd in Supremacy for Most Income Equality, scoring 2.78 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
