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 remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 7.935 billion Sockpuppetistanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 1.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Sockpuppetistanian economy, worth 988 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 124,597 Socks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Euthanasia is legal, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, a new Brasilistani government has become a daily report on the main evening news, and the nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan. 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 71st in the South Pacific and 5,400th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring 470.03 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
