What is an artificially low interest rate?

I always hear that federal interest rates are being kept artificially low. How do they know?

What is the federal interest rate was 5% and someone said that it was artificially low? How could they prove that?

Likewise, what if the federal interest rate was 0.5% and someone said that it was artificially low?

How do you figure out what the interest rate should be?
