The Republic of Poseidon island is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 316 million Poseidon islandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poseidon City. The average income tax rate is 52.5%.

The strong Poseidon islandian economy, worth 20.9 trillion lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 66,060 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Poseidon island's radio stations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Poseidon island's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Poseidon island is ranked 25,627th in the world and 1,302nd in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,226.01 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
