The Empire of Ferroia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Emperor with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 10.047 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 tiny government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, 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. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Ferroian economy, worth a remarkable 3,220 trillion Iron bucks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Retail. Average income is an amazing 320,573 Iron bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Ferroia, NationStates staff are easily recognizable by their gold-plated mansions, there's no representation without taxation, and the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress. 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 113,860th in the world and 825th in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 346 billion Standard Monetary Units.
