The Protectorate of Sockpuppetistan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Mister Sock with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.441 billion Sockpuppetistanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Social Equality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sockland Fun Park. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Gambling.

The commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Sockpuppetistan with a very polite populace, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and all news sources are under strict government control. Crime is crippling. Sockpuppetistan's national animal is the Ninja, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is The Church of the Holey Sock, and its currency is the Sock.

Sockpuppetistan is ranked 1,514th in the South Pacific and 46,289th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 62 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
