Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Protectorate of Sockpuppetistan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Mister Sock with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 10.186 billion Sockpuppetistanians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Sockpuppetistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,432 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 140,594 Socks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 592,800 per year while the poor average 21,606, a ratio of 27.4 to 1.

Priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, Information Technology facilities are being turned into Ninja habitats, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and visions of giant pink Ninjas are a common side effect after Sockpuppetistanians eat their meals. Crime is all-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 191,165th in the world and 13,139th in the South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 2 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
