The Puppet of Aglore is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.519 billion Agloreans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cookierama City. The average income tax rate is 67.6%.

The powerhouse Aglorean economy, worth 195 trillion Globits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 77,757 Globits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

It is now illegal for teens to view any sites except Club Kitten and My Little Donkey, the government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aglore's national animal is the Aglorean Hoodlehoo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Aglore is ranked 167,022nd in the world and 7th in Power for Most Pro-Market, scoring -58.56 on the Rand Index.
