The PS2 Puppet of Aqualagoon is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, fear of technology, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.88 billion Aqualagoonians 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 relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Administration is also considered important, while Welfare and Healthcare receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 8.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aqualagoonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,025 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 a large, well-organized, 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 149,038 Raindrops, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, and the police have been reduced to using duct tape instead of handcuffs following further cutbacks. 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 169,866th in the world and 7,624th in the West Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -15.23 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
