Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Protectorate of Sockpuppetistan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mister Sock with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 7.335 billion Sockpuppetistanians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

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. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Sockpuppetistanian economy, worth 916 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 124,904 Socks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Sockpuppetistan with a very polite populace, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, priests are being drafted by the church load, and the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge. 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 140th in the South Pacific and 8,844th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 303 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
