The Protectorate of Postertag is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Fred with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, triple-decker prams, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.883 billion Postertagians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Postertag. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Postertagian economy, worth a remarkable 3,169 trillion Shiny Green Things a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 199,577 Shiny Green Things, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The Finance Ministry has gone into meltdown upon hearing the price to avoid nuclear disaster, construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government-imposed restrictions, and drowning sailors are hung out to dry. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Postertag's national animal is the Scorpion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Posters.

Postertag is ranked 216,461st in the world and 14th in Albion for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -5.66 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
