The Great Sprawling Cradle of Ironsatan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Sovran United-Populus Entity Routine with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.337 billion Numbers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nest-Layer 00. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Number economy, worth a remarkable 3,556 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 380,916 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

A favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, economics is a shrinking field, the fate of the world literally rests on The Sovran United-Populus Entity Routine's fingers, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ironsatan's national animal is the Nest Crawler, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The True Third Law.

Ironsatan is ranked 35,935th in the world and 165th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 5 Bank.
