The Manipulation of Wild Puppet is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its closed borders, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.582 billion Wild Puppets 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.2%.

The powerhouse Wild Puppet economy, worth 492 trillion hot $uppers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 74,849 hot $uppers, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 391,815 per year while the poor average 7,671, a ratio of 51.1 to 1.

Hairdressers are forced to use all the tricks of the trade after citizens became required to wear helmets at all times, the barter economy has taken over as the hot $upper has become worthless, online tourism reviews of Wild Puppet are suspiciously positive and amazingly similar, and people forget to eat because they are too busy singing Leader's praises. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wild Puppet's national animal is the wild thing, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Wild Puppet is ranked 156,460th in the world and 27th in Gypsy Lands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -5.29 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
