The Easter VrijStaat of Ownzone is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Punisher with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.375 billion Ownzoneans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vault 75. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ownzonean economy, worth a remarkable 3,183 trillion Eggs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 257,256 Eggs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, the national defense strategy is a little floppy, many friends and relatives of The Punisher have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and unemployed accountants keep double-entry ledgers of their benefit claims. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ownzone's national animal is the Cow Murloc, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dudeism.

Ownzone is ranked 2,807th in the world and 30th in Forest for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 23,363.31 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
