The Protectorate of Sockpuppetistan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Mister Sock with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.923 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, pro-business 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.

Organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, and referenda are held for every conceivable government action. 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 754th in the South Pacific and 28,859th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 6 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
