The Sovereign Social Union of Puetavisa is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Generalissimus Emmanuel Soto with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.632 billion comrades are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prosperta. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Puetavistan economy, worth 408 trillion krónas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 155,160 krónas, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Annual Formula One races bring the capital to a screeching halt, former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage, excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, and basic multiplication is all you need to know to have a child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Puetavisa's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Red Catholicism.

Puetavisa is ranked 3,821st in the world and 1st in The Clover Confederation for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 12,015.83 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
