The Small Yellow Sign of Railroad Crossing is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Metro Commute with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, enslaved workforce, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 2.112 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 64.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Choo-Choo economy, worth 247 trillion Checkers a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 117,287 Checkers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, the arms industry is backed by government subsidies and harsh anti-protest laws are in place, becoming a missionary is a sure-fire route to martyrdom, and tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Railroad Crossing Blood Tithe. 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 11,459th in the world and 901st in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 31.67 Bank.
