The Colony of Puppet02 is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.1 billion Puppet02ians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Spirituality, although Defense, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Music Box. The average income tax rate is 30.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Puppet02ian economy, worth 57.7 trillion Souls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 27,496 Souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, military spending is on the increase, Puppet02 has designated The Music Box as its capital city, and genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Puppet02's national animal is the Puppet, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Puppet02 is ranked 193,305th in the world and 6th in The Rainbow Army for Most Secular, with 12.64 Atheism Rate.
