Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Protectorate of Sockpuppetistan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Mister Sock with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 9.23 billion Sockpuppetistanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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. The average income tax rate is 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Sockpuppetistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,257 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 136,259 Socks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Sockpuppetistan's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, hordes of gardening enthusiasts are being banished from cities nationwide, breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, and soldiers are equipped with multi-million Sock battlesuits. Crime is 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 5,903rd in the South Pacific and 141,595th in the world for Safest, scoring -236.65 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
