The PS2 Puppet of Aqualagoon is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its fear of technology, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.884 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, socially-minded, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Industry, with Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Law & Order receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 19.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aqualagoonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,356 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 172,049 Raindrops, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A government program is underway to revitalize Aqualagoon's beaches, children in school learn that marriage and slavery go hand in hand, theatre may or may not be changing for the better but it is being changed for good, and party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend. 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 9,475th in the world and 243rd in the South Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 172,049.62 Standard Monetary Units.
