The People's Republic of Puffandria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Fluffle Puff with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.041 billion Puffandrians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flufferia. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Puffandrian economy, worth a remarkable 3,823 trillion Smileses 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 amazing 293,194 Smileses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's exceedingly polite children have often been referred to as "robots" by international media, heart failure has skyrocketed among elderly nobles who are morally opposed to pacemakers, ghost regiments exist only on paper, and the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Puffandria's national animal is the Magical Pony, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Ponism.

Puffandria is ranked 110,839th in the world and 593rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 1,948.91 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
