The N700A Series Shinkansen of The Featured Region Express is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Train Conductor JACJ with an iron fist, and remarkable for its fear of technology, enslaved workforce, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.256 billion Featured Region Express Passengers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Industry, Public Transport, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of A N700A Series Shinkansen's Locomotive. The average income tax rate is 74.9%.

The powerhouse Featured Region Express Passenger economy, worth 73.3 trillion Passenger Tickets a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Gambling and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 58,375 Passenger Tickets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, Train Conductor JACJ has just been declared ruler of The Featured Region Express in an international press conference, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is pervasive, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. The Featured Region Express's national animal is the Arctic Tern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Featured Region Express is ranked 7,735th in the world and 3rd in Kerbin for Most Secular, with 97.22 Atheism Rate.
