The Free Land of POSElDOS is a small, genial nation, renowned for its burgeoning monkey population. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 40 million POSElDOSians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 16.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient POSElDOSian economy, worth 1.71 trillion seidos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,850 seidos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children dream of becoming physicians and physicists, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-seidos mansions, and high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate. Crime is almost non-existent. POSElDOS's national animal is the monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

POSElDOS is ranked 47,385th in the world and 2,272nd in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.84 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
