The Protectorate of Sockpuppetistan is a tiny, devout nation, ruled by Mister Sock with an iron fist, and remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 16 million 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.

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.

Gun ownership is compulsory, eminent domain has been abolished, government police forces protect public schools from the threat of protest, and immigrant herding has become a national pastime. 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 91st in the South Pacific and 6,134th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 5 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.

Sockpuppetistan is currently attempting to exterminate its infected with military force.
