The PS2 Puppet of Aqualagoon is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, fear of technology, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.318 billion Aqualagoonians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Administration, Spirituality, and Environment also on the agenda, while Welfare and Education aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 35.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aqualagoonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,644 trillion Raindrops 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, highly specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture and Trout Farming. 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 197,752 Raindrops, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Constipated-looking politicians are uptight about potty mouths, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, wildlife near farms is slowly becoming extinct, and the full title of Hon Leader Vcte Mgve MF PPALM GCAE runs to several pages. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Aqualagoon's national animal is the Trout, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Aqualagoon is ranked 83,728th in the world and 2,515th in the South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 183 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
