The I need a good pretitle of Poswon is a huge, safe nation, ruled by James BowShot with an even hand, and notable for its enslaved workforce, avant-garde cinema, and public floggings. The hard-nosed population of 806 million Poswons 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poswon City. The average income tax rate is 70.6%.

The thriving Poswonan economy, worth 55.3 trillion Pounds 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, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Gambling, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 68,559 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians take citizens for idiots, schoolchildren learn basic numeracy by counting off their push-ups, crossbow bolts fill the skies if so much as a sparrow flies overhead, and James BowShot has just been declared ruler of Poswon in an international press conference. Crime is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Poswon's national animal is the Zombie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Poswon is ranked 35,337th in the world and 2,203rd in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 64.06 on the Human Development Index.
