The Small Yellow Sign of Railroad Crossing is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Metro Commute with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, avowedly heterosexual populace, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 2.095 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 64.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Choo-Choo economy, worth 241 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 115,486 Checkers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to liberate slaves, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, faking deafness is the only way to guarantee a holiday in the nation, and hospitals are cleaned with lemons and vinegar. 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 177,573rd in the world and 6,403rd in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -85.15 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
