The Republic of Land of metal is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tom Baker with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 29.148 billion Land of metals have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government prioritizes Environment, with Education also on the agenda, while Defense and Healthcare aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 7.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but underdeveloped Land of metalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,698 trillion ciders a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 58,283 ciders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, Tom Baker has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, and truancy levels are on the rise ever since school registers were banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Land of metal's national animal is the headbanging monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Land of metal is ranked 130,507th in the world and 12th in Heavy Metal Heaven for Largest Black Market, with 224 billion Standard Monetary Units.
