The Colony of Yuyu Puppet 42 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.873 billion Yuyu Puppet 42ians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Yuyu Puppet 42ian economy, worth 792 trillion Yuyu coins 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 Woodchip Exports, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 162,563 Yuyu coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mountains of VHS tapes of police actions are stacking up in the National Library, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, the government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins, and at customs baggage gets an x-ray and female travelers get an ultrasound. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Yuyu Puppet 42's national animal is the Yuyu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Yuyu Puppet 42 is ranked 8,000th in the world and 3rd in Willow Farm for Highest Poor Incomes, with 122,483.92 Standard Monetary Units.
