The Kingdom of Posing Question is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Squidward with an even hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 6.754 billion Posing Questionians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hispaniola. The average income tax rate is 25.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Posing Questionian economy, worth a remarkable 2,359 trillion pesos a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 349,313 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Everybody's got wood thanks to Squidward, school guidance counselors recommend monastic vows as an alternative to higher education, governments opposing Posing Question are beset by rebels, and heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Posing Question's national animal is the milkfish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Confucianism.

Posing Question is ranked 149,376th in the world and 2,735th in Lazarus for Most Influential, scoring 73 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
