The Republic of Puckconnolly is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 624 million Puckconnollyians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thisby. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Puckconnollyian economy, worth 53.0 trillion marks a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,938 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, criminal rehabilitation takes place in re-education centers, advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Leader's most personal functions, and businesses often fire workers in favour of cheaper automatic systems. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Puckconnolly's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Puckconnolly is ranked 158,996th in the world and 6,029th in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 9.88 Atheism Rate.
