Railroad Crossing

Population384 million

CapitalGrand Dieselton


The Commonwealth of Railroad Crossing is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its public floggings, infamous sell-swords, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 384 million Certified Citizens are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Dieselton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.9%.

The frighteningly efficient American economy, worth 33.0 trillion Checkers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 85,814 Checkers, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, American scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack, sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, and Grand Dieselton's main city thoroughfare has been blocked by a row of leyland cypresses that mysteriously appeared overnight. Crime is moderate. Railroad Crossing's national animal is the Station, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Railroad Crossing is ranked 106,353rd in the world and 5,542nd in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 17.55 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
