The People's Republic of Puffandria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Fluffle Puff with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 16.413 billion Puffandrians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flufferia. The average income tax rate is 93.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Puffandrian economy, worth a remarkable 4,849 trillion Smileses 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 amazing 295,470 Smileses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign governments regularly accuse the Puffandrian military of war crimes, tabloids coo over Fluffle Puff's expected child, mums always ask their three-year-olds for permission before hugging them, and one-upping each other in conversation is strictly prohibited. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Puffandria's national animal is the Magical Pony, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Ponism.

Puffandria is ranked 276,559th in the world and 793rd in 10000 Islands for Most Pro-Market, scoring -80.78 on the Rand Index.
