The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.129 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."

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, moralistic individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pleasures Island City. Income tax is unheard of. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, fearful citizens watch their every move as does their government, and political activists are routinely executed. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Pleasures Island's national animal is the human, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the psi.

Pleasures Island is ranked 4,323rd in the Pacific and 117,470th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
