The Disputed Territories of Possumville is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 879 million Possumvillers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Nest. The average income tax rate is 43.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Possumvillean economy, worth 25.5 trillion Tales a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 28,976 Tales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The entire entry for Possumville in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, Possumville has designated The Nest as its capital city, and a ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Possumville's national animal is the Possum, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Possumville is ranked 164,296th in the world and 233rd in Refugia for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
