The PS2 Puppet of Aqualagoon is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Shrub with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, lack of airports, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.169 billion Aqualagoonians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Florapolis. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Aqualagoonian economy, worth a remarkable 4,372 trillion Raindrops 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 Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. 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 amazing 359,288 Raindrops, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Quiet professionalism has returned to the nation's armed forces, conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, a signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that she is in fact a crook after all, and the new intercity submarine SSN Trout Warrior instills terror in claustrophobic travellers. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Aqualagoon's national animal is the Trout, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Food.

Aqualagoon is ranked 260,171st in the world and 10,416th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 0.1 quips per hour.
