The Shogunate of Psunam is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Hideki Kojama with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.148 billion Psunamians 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 Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Manauq. The average income tax rate is 28.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Psunamian economy, worth 243 trillion Namis 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 an impressive 113,422 Namis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, heartfelt sentiments are mercilessly marketed by a million-Nami treacle machine, political detractors refer to Hideki Kojama as 'that Bigtopian puppet', and shoppers have literally had their hands full since plastic bags were banned. Crime is totally unknown. Psunam's national animal is the Koi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Baedism.

Psunam is ranked 166,407th in the world and 19th in Lezra for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -4 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
