The PS2 Puppet of Iguanarctica is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 13.568 billion Iguanarcticans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment and Industry are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Iguanarctican economy, worth a remarkable 4,382 trillion Reptilias a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 323,022 Reptilias, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBI Governor goes house hunting, horns and hypocrisy are the newest exports of Iguanarctica, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, and the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor. Crime is totally unknown. Iguanarctica's national animal is the Iguana, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Iguanarctica is ranked 45,803rd in the world and 1,318th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 186.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
