The PS2 Puppet of Askatopia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Executioner with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, parental licensing program, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.823 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality and Law & Order are also considered important, while Welfare and Education 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 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Disposable economy, worth a remarkable 6,909 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 an amazing 466,128 Nuclear Bombs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent, The Executioner claims tax rises are the result of 'curses', it is written that heretics die and The Executioner laughs, and foreign converts are illuminated by both missionaries and helicopter searchlights. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 1,099th in the world and 21st in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 6,909 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
