    config firewall address6
        edit "test-ipv6-geoip"
            set type geography
            set color 6
            set comment "IPv6 Geography address"

            set name "test-policy6-1"
            set srcintf "wan2"
            set dstintf "wan1"
            set srcaddr6 "all"
            set dstaddr6 "test-ipv6-geoip"
            set action accept
            set schedule "always"
