Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.578 billion Pleasures Islandians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Pleasures Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,026 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 Tourism. 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 161,106 psis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations, the government has hired out-of-work fashion designers to design purses for men, and heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 174,884th in the world and 10,079th in the Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -14.7 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
