The Free Republic of Staypuftonia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lars Holdvriedt with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.606 billion Staypuftons are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Geylang Lake. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Staypuftonian economy, worth 905 trillion Pufts a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 196,564 Pufts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The cancellation of "The Real Vixens of Geylang Lake" has been described as a real blow for entertainment, breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, and the 'three Rs' have become the 'four Rs' with the addition of Rightful Thought. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Staypuftonia's national animal is the Puft Marshmallow Man, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Staypuftonia is ranked 215,335th in the world and 1st in Independent Republics for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -269.01 on the Hayek Index.
