The Unreadable Wall of Text of Forum Puppet is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Guy LeDouche with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 25.514 billion Forum Puppetians 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.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Forum. The average income tax rate is 61.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Forum Puppetian economy, worth a remarkable 3,277 trillion Forums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 128,456 Forums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, millions of Forums have been thrown into a project to find the cure for Mad Puppet Disease, and refugees without a PhD are sent back to where they came from. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Forum Puppet's national animal is the Puppet, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Forum Puppet is ranked 130,377th in the world and 6th in Q102 for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 771.7 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
