The Angry Cookie Monster of Muppet Puppet Manager II is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Cookie Monster with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.631 billion Muppets 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cookie Jar. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Cookie Monster economy, worth 862 trillion Cookies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 186,201 Cookies, with the richest citizens earning 7.3 times as much as the poorest.

The diplomatic corps stinks, panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', and signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars. Crime is totally unknown. Muppet Puppet Manager II's national animal is the Big Bird, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hensonology.

Muppet Puppet Manager II is ranked 53,959th in the world and 74th in Spiritus for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,849.31 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
