The Grand Duchy of Poson is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, avowedly heterosexual populace, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 681 million Posonians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krakow. The average income tax rate is 47.8%.

The Posonian economy, worth 38.8 trillion lire a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,976 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Stores employing more than 100 employees are required to be at least twenty miles from any competitor, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, government officials across Poson are being "encouraged" to adopt unicorns to set an example for the populace, and construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Poson's national animal is the unicorn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Poson is ranked 186,556th in the world and 260th in First World Order for Most Beautiful Environments, with 364.27 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
