The Really not a Puppet of This Is Not A Puppet is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Bob Ross with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.564 billion Human Beings hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High School. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Human economy, worth 517 trillion Wolfmarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,039 Wolfmarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bob Ross has just been declared ruler of This Is Not A Puppet in an international press conference, Happy Trees has been named as This Is Not A Puppet's national religion, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, and polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts. Crime is totally unknown. This Is Not A Puppet's national animal is the Dire Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Happy Trees.

This Is Not A Puppet is ranked 25,109th in the world and 8th in The Wolf Clan for Most Influential, scoring 1,331 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
