The Small Yellow Sign of Railroad Crossing is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Metro Commute with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, avowedly heterosexual populace, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 2.057 billion Choo-Choos 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Dieselton. The average income tax rate is 61.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Choo-Choo economy, worth 239 trillion Checkers a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,444 Checkers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Terrorists who are 17th cousins with the ex-wives of half-brothers of citizens are now exempt from the immigration ban, the Violetist community celebrates bombshells being dropped on Railroad Crossing, former nobles are being issued new identities in the wake of the end of serfdom, and road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Railroad Crossing's national animal is the Station, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ticketism.

Railroad Crossing is ranked 214,043rd in the world and 8,934th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 6.5 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
