The PS2 Puppet of Askatopia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Executioner with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory vegetarianism, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.24 billion Disposables 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 prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Education and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Unyielding Cesspit Of Filth. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Disposable economy, worth a remarkable 9,295 trillion Nuclear Bombs 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, highly specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. 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 a breathtaking 539,186 Nuclear Bombs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation has learned that pulling out is messy, the nation's student exchange programs are something of a one way street, six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion, and skyscrapers get built in just days. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Askatopia's national animal is the Slug, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Violetism.

Askatopia is ranked 217th in the world and 7th in the South Pacific for Most Patriotic, with 132.83 flags saluted per person per day.
