Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.247 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pleasures Island City. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Pleasures Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,509 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 134,226 psis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, Leader's exquisite office door is replaced monthly due to angry petitioners, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

Pleasures Island is ranked 5,767th in the world and 77th in the Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1,509 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
