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 renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 7.715 billion Sockpuppetistanians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

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 1.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Sockpuppetistanian economy, worth 956 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 123,929 Socks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Assault rifles sized for 7-year-olds are a frighteningly popular export, all streets are privately owned toll roads, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', and Sockpuppetistan's nuclear reactors are held together with party string and Hubba Bubba. 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 6,502nd in the South Pacific and 144,317th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -125 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
