The Free Land of Poetsland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.86 billion Poetslandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Environment and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Law & Order receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Poetslandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,306 trillion Libroes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,140 Libroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders. Crime is totally unknown. Poetsland's national animal is the Black Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Poetsland is ranked 238,750th in the world and 540th in NationStates for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -19.24 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
