Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.758 billion Pleasures Islandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pleasures Island City. The average income tax rate is 72.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Pleasures Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,191 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, Information Technology, Book Publishing, 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 an impressive 110,723 psis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All guns must be registered, the nation is known as the cheapskates of the Pacific, waste is frequently shipped to other countries, and every product goes through extensive safety-testing by the government. 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 715th in the Pacific and 22,045th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 52 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
