The PS2 Puppet of Iguanarctica is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, sprawling nuclear power plants, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 14.907 billion Iguanarcticans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Cosa. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Iguanarctican economy, worth a remarkable 5,167 trillion Reptilias a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 346,669 Reptilias, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Interest in globalism never flags, late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Leader's questionably sane new coalition partners, parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions, and refugees from other nations are flocking to Iguanarctica's border. Crime is totally unknown. Iguanarctica's national animal is the Iguana, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is None.

Iguanarctica is ranked 240,865th in the world and 8,141st in the South Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 5.23 Insults Per Minute.
