The Second Best Colony of Second Best Puppet 102 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Noah with an even hand, and renowned for its closed borders, teetotalling pirates, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.705 billion Second Best Puppet 102ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.1%.

The powerhouse Second Best Puppet 102ian economy, worth 188 trillion cards 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 a large, well-organized black market in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. 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 69,553 cards, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, and visions of giant pink legendaries are a common side effect after Second Best Puppet 102ians eat their meals. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Second Best Puppet 102's national animal is the legendary, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Second Best Puppet 102 is ranked 226,905th in the world and 884th in Second Best Card Farm for Fattest Citizens, with 6.2 Obesity Rate.
