The Empire of Ferroia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Emperor with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.69 billion Ferroians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neurocity. The average income tax rate is 41.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ferroian economy, worth a remarkable 2,834 trillion Iron bucks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Retail. Average income is an amazing 326,235 Iron bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, children keel over while singing "The Emperor Gives Us the Water of Life", it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and referenda are held for every conceivable government action. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ferroia's national animal is the Snipe, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Ferroia is ranked 102,659th in the world and 2,808th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 47.22 on the Rand Index.
