The Empire of Ferroia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Emperor with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 10.095 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neurocity. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ferroian economy, worth a remarkable 3,241 trillion Iron bucks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Retail. Average income is an amazing 321,094 Iron bucks, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. 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 1,675th in the world and 28th in the West Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 9,040.93 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
