The Protectorate of Sockpuppetistan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mister Sock with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.308 billion Sockpuppetistanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 Law & Order are on the agenda. 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.

Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative', sales of fishnet stockings have reached a record high, and drunk drivers are sentenced to death. 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 112th in the South Pacific and 7,811th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring 5 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
