The Democratic Social Union of Posteastan is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vasilescu Tavitian with an iron fist, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 820 million Posteastanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tabolov. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Posteastanian economy, worth 5.49 trillion Bozias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 6,691 Bozias, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, the word 'foreigner' is considered a highly vulgar expletive, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, and Vasilescu Tavitian has just been declared ruler of Posteastan in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Posteastan's national animal is the Otter, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Posteastan is ranked 128,638th in the world and 117th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -4.24 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
