The Huggletime Kingdom of The Poofy Nation of Lots of Hugs is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Huggletime Emperor with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 6.082 billion Poofies have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Poofopolis and HUGOPOLIS. The average income tax rate is 72.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Poofy economy, worth 252 trillion Hugs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,593 Hugs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, the The Poofy Nation of Lots of Hugs Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', and the Great Poofy Melting Pot boils out ethnic heritage. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Poofy Nation of Lots of Hugs's national animal is the Adorable huggable snugglebat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Huggletime.

The Poofy Nation of Lots of Hugs is ranked 133,835th in the world and 36th in The Interdimensional Community for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,078.36 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
