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 notable for its vat-grown people, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 12.159 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 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Pleasures Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,761 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 144,907 psis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, and Pleasures Island City spends billions upgrading public transport. 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 33,824th in the world and 2,167th in the Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 4,459.72 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
