The Protectorate of Sockpuppetistan is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Mister Sock with a fair hand, and remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.316 billion live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

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 on the agenda. 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 Gambling and Arms Manufacturing.

Priests are being drafted by the church load, birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, reports of attacks by bright purple sixty-foot high spiders have recently shot up, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. 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 98th in the South Pacific and 7,797th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring 283.75 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
