The Colony of Celestial Puppet is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 262 million Celestials are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.2%.

The thriving Celestial Puppetian economy, worth 15.5 trillion Jewels a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 59,188 Jewels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 216,379 per year while the poor average 11,484, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, and seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Celestial Puppet's national animal is the Diamond.

Celestial Puppet is ranked 1,881st in the world and 1st in Amalgamated Federation for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 9,308.41 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
