The Triumph Federocracy of Railroad Crossing is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Metro Commute with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 2.039 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 61.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Choo-Choo economy, worth 236 trillion Checkers a year, is 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 115,969 Checkers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

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, the Violetist community celebrates bombshells being dropped on Railroad Crossing, and former nobles are being issued new identities in the wake of the end of serfdom. 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 65,942nd in the world and 2,414th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 174,607 Standard Monetary Units.
