The Small Yellow Sign of Railroad Crossing is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Metro Commute with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, rampant corporate plagiarism, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 2.1 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 65.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Choo-Choo economy, worth 243 trillion Checkers a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 116,123 Checkers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, judicial torture is outsourced overseas, and citizens tint their front windows to avoid starring in the 'TV Detector Patrol Unit' documentary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 76,514th in the world and 3,629th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 65.72 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
