The Colony of Yuyu Puppet 49 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, prohibition of alcohol, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.68 billion Yuyu Puppet 49ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.7%.

The thriving Yuyu Puppet 49ian economy, worth 468 trillion Yuyu coins 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, Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. 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 100,080 Yuyu coins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 315,324 per year while the poor average 24,287, a ratio of 13.0 to 1.

Bands of adventurers rove the countryside searching for monsters, Yuyu Puppet 49ians have replaced bears in a popular idiom, debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yuyu Puppet 49's national animal is the Yuyu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Yuyu Puppet 49 is ranked 17,718th in the world and 143rd in Willow Farm for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 22,723.61 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
