The Protectorate of Sockpuppetistan is a colossal, devout nation, ruled by Mister Sock with an iron fist, and notable for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.75 billion Sockpuppetistanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals devotes most of its attentions to Defence, with areas such as Social Equality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. 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 Arms Manufacturing and Gambling.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the new hit series "Sockpuppetistan's Got Trauma" has corporate executives fleeing the country, and midnight pizza breaks are common among the work-from-home population. Crime is a major problem. 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 312th in the South Pacific and 14,766th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
