The Second Best Colony of Second Best Puppet 33 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Noah with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.4 billion Second Best Puppet 33ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 65.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Second Best Puppet 33ian economy, worth 144 trillion cards a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 103,388 cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead, claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense, the Second Best Puppet 33 City Prison Revue puts on a better stage show than anything in the Theatre District, and the nation tends not to learn from its history. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Second Best Puppet 33's national animal is the legendary, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Second Best Puppet 33 is ranked 117,857th in the world and 522nd in Second Best Card Farm for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 419.9 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
