Not every number has a zip code associated with it. But you can check this list of Oklahoma zip codes if you Really Must Know.
So... are American postal codes by town, instead of by street?

Yep.
In rural areas a Postal Code can go on for Miles and Miles.
In a Large City the code might change several times.

The street I live on has two postcodes. And it's not a long street.

I moved six miles, down out of the Forest.
My Postal Code remained the same.

Actually, American zip codes indicate which post office will take care of delivering the item to the recipient.

Multiple post offices can handle different parts of the same street. The longest street in Los Angeles is Sepulveda Boulevard. I'll try to determine how many zip codes it runs through.

[Grabbing zip codes for addresses on Sepulveda Boulevard:

90034
90045
90049
90064
90230
90245
90254
90266
90501
90505
90710
90745
90810
91345
91402
91405
91411

Oh, gosh, this will take too long. It's safe to say that it's in the dozens, though.]

I had a summer job at one of those post offices along Sepulveda Boulevard one summer while I was in college. Heh. Memories. I had never really actively hated anyone in my life before (and haven't since), but I made an exception for the postmaster there. He took every possible opportunity to demean his underlings, so that he could feel omnipotent in his little fiefdom. Ugh. That management style seemed to be rewarded by the higher-ups, so I understood why so many postal employees across the country were "going postal" and shooting up their workplaces at the time (the 1980s).

In England, the first half of the postcode does that. e.g. if your postcode is EC1N 8NX, the "EC1N" represents the post office, and 8NX tells you what street / section of a street you're in.

I explained it at the bottom of the last page. There's plenty of both Oklahoma and Germany left.

I have a feeling that Germany would win by a whole lot more if it flattened out. As Oklahoma already is, almost.
