Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, state-planned economy, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.975 billion Pleasures Islandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pleasures Island City. The average income tax rate is 82.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Pleasures Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,698 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Trout Farming, 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 141,839 psis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, Leader's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will, all footpaths have tollbooths, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pleasures Island's national animal is the human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.

Pleasures Island is ranked 52,489th in the world and 2,430th in the Pacific for Most Conservative, scoring 55.31 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
