The Protectorate of Pumpty Dumpty is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its restrictive gun laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.092 billion Weeping Farmers are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Third Best Capital. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.0%.

The very strong Weeping Farmer economy, worth 65.2 trillion stock crashes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is 59,667 stock crashes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 218,128 per year while the poor average 11,577, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

Teachers prefer to give 'Maybe, Maybe Not' tests when dealing with sensitive subjects, decaying farm hamlets have twice the representation of major urban areas, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, and all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Third Best Capital. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Pumpty Dumpty's national animal is the MV hunter.

Pumpty Dumpty is ranked 134,962nd in the world and 106th in Eientei Gensokyo for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 420.99 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
