The Puppeteering Nation of Puppet of the Puppet is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jim Henson with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, ritual sacrifices, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 1.075 billion Puppeteers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puppetlvanian. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Puppet of the Puppetian economy, worth 120 trillion Weffle Pounds 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 111,706 Weffle Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is currently revamping its entire education system, shouting contests are an important part of government job interviews, space shuttles are lying silent on the runway till the Space Agency can work out how to fit a creche and a meditation room into their next spacecraft, and former slaves find themselves being herded onto ships once more. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Puppet of the Puppet's national animal is the Krazy Rabb1t, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Puppet of the Puppet is ranked 4,855th in the world and 1st in Weffle for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 6,723.76 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
