The Dominion of Ferrous is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Jody with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, sprawling nuclear power plants, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.848 billion hobos are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kurwaberg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Broke economy, worth 427 trillion Somas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 231,324 Somas, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Jody's new android secretary is the latest media darling, bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers', prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, and mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ferrous's national animal is the Rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Netorare.

Ferrous is ranked 241,330th in the world and 8,156th in the South Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 6.73 Tourists Per Hour.
