The Republic of Puckconnolly is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its daily referendums, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 598 million Puckconnollyians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thisby. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Puckconnollyian economy, worth 49.8 trillion marks a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,263 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, only clowns with PhDs from clown college can advise Leader on Puckconnolly's coulrophobia epidemic, citizens are required to report any and all incidents of prayer to their local Religious Affairs Officer, and skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Puckconnolly's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Puckconnolly is ranked 140,850th in the world and 5,477th in The East Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 48.52 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
