The Puppeteering Nation of Puppet of the Puppet is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Jim Henson with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, smutty television, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 974 million 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 74.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Puppet of the Puppetian economy, worth 109 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, Automobile Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. 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 112,251 Weffle Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, God took rock and roll from you, took rock and roll from everyone, employers are gradually adapting to the alien premise of paying wages to their workers, and a sudden shout of "surprise!" does not herald a party for teachers. 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 104,577th in the world and 5th in Weffle for Highest Economic Output, with 109 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
