The Oceanic State in Azuno of Poswon is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Admiral Jermone Geer with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 1.516 billion Poswonians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Outpost 1. The average income tax rate is 70.3%.

The thriving Poswonian economy, worth 106 trillion Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 70,282 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, the silencing of dissent speaks volumes about the quality of Poswonian democracy, cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes, and rap artists are regularly arrested for promoting extremist groups. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Poswon's national animal is the Zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Poswon is ranked 164,714th in the world and 19th in Azuno for Most Devout, with 2.46 Prayers Per Hour.
