Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.449 billion Pleasures Islandians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pleasures Island City. The average income tax rate is 52.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Pleasures Islandian economy, worth 690 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, Book Publishing, Information Technology, 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 73,058 psis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, foreign planes and migratory birds are shot down as spies, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, and the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid. 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 5,320th in the Pacific and 124,762nd in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -1,434.65 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
