The Republic of Puppet03 is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.466 billion Puppet03ians 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, well-organized government prioritizes Spirituality, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 45.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Puppet03ian economy, worth 35.8 trillion Souls 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 a slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Soda Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 24,441 Souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Puppet03's national animal is the Puppet, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Puppet03 is ranked 134,036th in the world and 4th in Naimark for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 438.4 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
