Railroad Crossing

Population389 million

CapitalGrand Dieselton


The Commonwealth of Railroad Crossing is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 389 million Travelers 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 37.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Traveler economy, worth 33.6 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 86,377 Checkers, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches, rock and roll involves rolling literal rocks in prison, lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies, and elections are won by the candidate who makes the best 'yo mama' jokes. 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 174,406th in the world and 8,871st in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 53.8 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
