The Protectorate of Sockpuppetistan is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Mister Sock with an even hand, and notable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.902 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 concentrates mainly on 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.

Online tourism reviews of Sockpuppetistan are suspiciously positive and amazingly similar, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. 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 167th in the South Pacific and 6,559th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 13 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
