The Fourth Puppet of Puppet4 is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 5.53 billion puppets live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.6%.

The very strong Puppet4ian economy, worth 213 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 38,561 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 166,166 per year while the poor average 5,707, a ratio of 29.1 to 1.

The contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Puppet4, fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, and there's more hugging than talking in most talk shows. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Puppet4's national animal is the puppet, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Puppet4 is ranked 100,396th in the world and 674th in Suspicious for Smartest Citizens, with 33.19 quips per hour.
