The Grand Monarchy of Puffin Islands is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Hunter the First with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.711 billion Puffin Islanders enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of South Port. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Puffin Islandsian economy, worth 694 trillion Puffels a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 121,613 Puffels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers can choose whether they prefer offices that smell of pungent body odor or whale vomit, foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Puffin Islands's national animal is the Tufted Puffin, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Puffin Islands is ranked 220,846th in the world and 402nd in Conch Kingdom for Best Weather, with 73 Meters Of Sunlight.
