The Protectorate of Pumpty Dumpty is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, restrictive gun laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.039 billion Weeping Farmers are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Third Best Capital. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.4%.

The thriving Weeping Farmer economy, worth 252 trillion stock crashes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. Average income is 62,414 stock crashes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 282,894 per year while the poor average 8,446, a ratio of 33.5 to 1.

A survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, every new toxic waste dump comes with a seal of approval from the government's science advisor, religion makes people horny, and business owners who refuse to hire ex-cons often wake up with an MV hunter's head in their bed. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Pumpty Dumpty's national animal is the MV hunter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Pumpty Dumpty is ranked 248,279th in the world and 9th in The Cardtel for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.6 bananas ingested per day.
