The Federal Republic of Poiston is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 316 million Poiyans 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hawkford. The average income tax rate is 29.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Poistonian economy, worth 25.4 trillion Poiston Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Trout Farming, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 80,357 Poiston Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, all judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion, students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, and it is rumoured that Leader uses a magic 8-ball to make policy decisions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Poiston's national animal is the Kererū, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Poiston is ranked 6,348th in the world and 204th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.86 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
