The Empire of Ferroia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Emperor with an even hand, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 11.281 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 tiny government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neurocity. The average income tax rate is 1.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ferroian economy, worth a remarkable 3,617 trillion Iron bucks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 320,629 Iron bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites, group hugs break out during floor votes, third world countries are rich in "I Love Neurocity" t-shirts, and selfie stick use is a required Scout badge. 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 230,459th in the world and 6,297th in the West Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 18.63 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
