The PS2 Puppet of Aqualagoon is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Shrub with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, triple-decker prams, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.521 billion Aqualagoonians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Industry, with Administration, Spirituality, and Environment also on the agenda, while Education and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Florapolis. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aqualagoonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,181 trillion Raindrops a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 302,377 Raindrops, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government workers are regularly taken hostage by protesters, heroes long thought dead are promptly killed upon their return, tribal villagers hide behind the sofa when missionaries knock at their doors, and veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Aqualagoon's national animal is the Trout, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Food.

Aqualagoon is ranked 241,999th in the world and 8,607th in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 1.45 law-abiding acts per hour.
