The Republic of Puckconnolly is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Coraline with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.518 billion 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thisby. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Puckconnollyian economy, worth 151 trillion marks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,084 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, and nine out of ten citizens of Puckconnolly answered 'nuclear safety inspector' when asked their occupation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 126,463rd in the world and 5,308th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -2 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
