The Angry Cookie Monster of Muppet Puppet Manager II is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Cookie Monster with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 1.848 billion Muppets 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cookie Jar. The average income tax rate is 67.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Cookie Monster economy, worth 215 trillion Cookies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 116,804 Cookies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Much of Muppet Puppet Manager II's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, political candidates who don't release their birth certificates are presumed to have been born in Maxtopia, and recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Muppet Puppet Manager II's national animal is the Big Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Hensonology.

Muppet Puppet Manager II is ranked 86,348th in the world and 129th in Spiritus for Most Extreme, scoring 17.64 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
