The Protectorate of Sockpuppetistan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Mister Sock with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.355 billion live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

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 secondary priorities. 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.

Space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, soldiers with colourful mohawks make themselves perfect targets for snipers, and insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways. 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 649th in the South Pacific and 24,687th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 3 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
