The Oppressed Peoples of Ironfistan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ayub Mirzapur with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.065 billion Ironfistanis are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. 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 2,341 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 331,360 rupees, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,084,492 per year while the poor average 3,225, a ratio of 956 to 1.

Young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, God took rock and roll from you, took rock and roll from everyone, and priests are being drafted by the church load. 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 218,997th in the world and 8,947th in The East Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 3.48 Tourists Per Hour.
