The Swashbuckling Buccaneer of Puetavisa is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Prince Hannibal Mountbatten-Jiménez with an iron fist, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, public floggings, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.046 billion Puetavistans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Prosperta. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Puetavistan economy, worth a remarkable 1,355 trillion wolfmarcks 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip 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 impressive 192,380 wolfmarcks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, heavily-armed commandos play rock-paper-scissors over whether to execute criminals and foreign visitors, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Puetavisa's national animal is the pirate, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Red Catholicism.

Puetavisa is ranked 233,022nd in the world and 121st in The Wolf Clan for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -9.44 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
