|Leader||The Grand Machinist-Emperor|
The Holy Empire of Ferroviaire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Grand Machinist-Emperor with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.875 billion Ferroviairites are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ferrum Portum. The average income tax rate is 81.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Ferroviairan economy, worth 160 trillion Sleepers a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 85,479 Sleepers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Fat-shaming is now public policy, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, the nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque, and libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ferroviaire's national animal is the Mallard, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Locomotivism.
