The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its strong anti-business policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 8.272 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 individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Law & Order. 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.

The government is sending thousands of citizens overseas to defend a square mile of land, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets, and calling out of the blue has become taboo. 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, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the psi.

Pleasures Island is ranked 3,707th in the Pacific and 103,113th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 0 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
