The Free Land of Poetsland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 11.403 billion Poetslandians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Environment and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Law & Order aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 58.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Poetslandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,271 trillion Libroes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,508 Libroes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Foreigners must sell an arm and a leg to afford surgery in Poetsland, forty-year-old men are asked for their ID before watching the latest pony cartoon movies, classes are regularly interrupted by drunken children, and grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them. Crime is totally unknown. Poetsland's national animal is the Black Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Poetsland is ranked 5,079th in the world and 32nd in NationStates for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 14,341.7 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
