The Angry Cookie Monster of Muppet Puppet Manager II is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Cookie Monster with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.215 billion Muppets are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cookie Jar. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Cookie Monster economy, worth 967 trillion Cookies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 185,480 Cookies, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 756,623 per year while the poor average 30,144, a ratio of 25.1 to 1.

Distrust of taps has many people bathing only with bottled mineral water, the name of the "Butcher of Bigtopia" adorns shirts across Muppet Puppet Manager II, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, and the government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks. Crime is almost non-existent. Muppet Puppet Manager II's national animal is the Big Bird, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hensonology.

Muppet Puppet Manager II is ranked 179,597th in the world and 219th in Spiritus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.39 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
