The Easter VrijStaat of Ownzone is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Punisher with an even hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.156 billion Ownzoneans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded 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 3,101 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 and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 255,147 Eggs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Cow Murloc has a hungry look, burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, there is no such thing as an innocent fling in the Ownzonean military, and facial disfigurement is a leading cause of supervillainy. 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 131,372nd in the world and 182nd in Forest for Most Extreme, scoring 18.69 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
