Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.774 billion Pleasures Islandians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pleasures Island City. The average income tax rate is 67.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Pleasures Islandian economy, worth 796 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 Soda Sales. 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 81,535 psis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television, public nudity is compulsory, and insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways. 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 2,861st in the Pacific and 79,099th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 48 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
