The People's Republic of Puffandria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Fluffle Puff with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.767 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 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Puffandrian economy, worth a remarkable 3,656 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, fairly 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 286,424 Smileses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The word 'elite' appears as a synonym for various insults in the Puffandrian Colonial Thesaurus, vacationing Puffandrians expect to be treated as royalty, goldfish bowls are three metres in diameter, and all gamers have been drafted into the military despite their lack of upper body strength. 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 254,370th in the world and 1,483rd in 10000 Islands for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -30 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
