The Protectorate of Sockpuppetistan is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Mister Sock with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 8.833 billion Sockpuppetistanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sockland Fun Park. The average income tax rate is 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Sockpuppetistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,183 trillion Socks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 133,933 Socks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Former school buses now regularly shuttle kids to the nearest shopping centers to work, the giant 80-storey carving of Mister Sock in Mount Rushless can be seen from space, corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, and Ninja is one of the most popular forenames in Sockpuppetistan. Crime is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Sockpuppetistan's national animal is the Ninja, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Church of the Holey Sock.

Sockpuppetistan is ranked 3,001st in the South Pacific and 68,902nd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.36 Stalins.
