The Street Legal Engine of Roadkill Rodents is a massive, safe nation, ruled by a Road Ready Flat Snack engineer with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.641 billion Roadkill Rodents are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iron Horse. The average income tax rate is 30.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Roadkill Rodentsian economy, worth 340 trillion train tracks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,372 train tracks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

More than one company makes the board game Monopoly, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, and tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Roadkill Rodents's national animal is the parts of mangled rodents rolled into one, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the train kept a rolling all night long.

Roadkill Rodents is ranked 90,615th in the world and 2nd in Train Station for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 51 Whatever.
