The Electric Mayhem of Muppet Puppet Manager is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Dr Teeth with an even hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, smutty television, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.313 billion Muppets are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Henson's Hand. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Muppeteered economy, worth 601 trillion Zoots a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 181,471 Zoots, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 595,120 per year while the poor average 41,530, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.

Two inland cities have unveiled their new desalination plants, scaffolding is built around scaffolding to give safe access, spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches, and bemused schoolkids colour in their favourite quadratic equations with crayons. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Muppet Puppet Manager's national animal is the Drumsmashing Animaaaal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Hensonism.

Muppet Puppet Manager is ranked 25,883rd in the world and 63rd in Spiritus for Most Developed, scoring 70.03 on the Human Development Index.
