The Empire of Ferroia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Emperor with an even hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, otherworldly petting zoo, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.651 billion Ferroians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neurocity. The average income tax rate is 39.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ferroian economy, worth a remarkable 2,824 trillion Iron bucks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Retail. Average income is an amazing 326,501 Iron bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Thousands of citizens have been evicted from their homes so as 'not to cause a fuss' on the international scene, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, and open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ferroia's national animal is the Snipe, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is None.

Ferroia is ranked 61,887th in the world and 2,194th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 3,104.56 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
