The Mayonnaise of Puppet1 is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.89 billion Puppet1ians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 31.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Puppet1ian economy, worth 70.5 trillion rubledollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 18,113 rubledollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jumping in puddles after rainstorms has become an indoor activity, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Puppet1's national animal is the puppet.

Puppet1 is ranked 164,654th in the world and 17th in Testregionia for Fattest Citizens, with 9.75 Obesity Rate.
