The Empire of Ferroia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Emperor with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.346 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, corrupt government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neurocity. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ferroian economy, worth a remarkable 2,008 trillion Iron bucks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 316,574 Iron bucks, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

A new "thought police" branch is being developed, frequent broken zippers have resulted in safety pins making a fashion comeback, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. 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 161,802nd in the world and 6,310th in the West Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -66 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
