The Small Golden Sign of Railroad Crossing is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Metro Commute with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, digital currency, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 898 million Choo-Choos enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Choo-Choo economy, worth 99.8 trillion Checkers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,164 Checkers, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.

Motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", Metro Commute has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished, and society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Railroad Crossing's national animal is the Station, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Railroad Crossing is ranked 55,867th in the world and 2,599th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 494.74 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
