The Protectorate of Sockpuppetistan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Mister Sock with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.238 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 is mainly concerned with Defence, although Commerce and Education are secondary priorities. 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.

Most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job, children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, and the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources. 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 3,833rd in the South Pacific and 104,516th in the world for Best Weather, with -95 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
