The Empire of Ferroia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by The Emperor with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, vat-grown people, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.153 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, although Industry, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, 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 2,884 trillion Iron bucks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 315,153 Iron bucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

A murderous reputation can revitalise a flagging celebrity career, panicking criminals no longer flush contraband down the toilet, forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left, and the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network. 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 1,118th in the world and 27th in the West Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 216,374.24 Standard Monetary Units.
