The Triumph Federocracy of Railroad Crossing is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Metro Commute with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 1.78 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 medium-sized, 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 55.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Choo-Choo economy, worth 210 trillion Checkers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,234 Checkers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Cancer rates amongst the richest in society are inexplicably on the rise, amorous nobles always bring the same disappointing gift to weddings, terrorists who are 17th cousins with the ex-wives of half-brothers of citizens are now exempt from the immigration ban, and the Violetist community celebrates bombshells being dropped on Railroad Crossing. 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 42,241st in the world and 2,387th in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 52,614.52 Standard Monetary Units.
