Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.209 billion Pleasures Islandians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pleasures Island City. The average income tax rate is 31.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Pleasures Islandian economy, worth 463 trillion psis 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 Trout Farming, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Gambling. 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 50,356 psis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, the world outside is only known of in folklore, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and Pleasures Island City spends billions upgrading public transport. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pleasures Island's national animal is the human, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

Pleasures Island is ranked 64th in the Pacific and 2,560th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 347 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
