Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its national health service, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.426 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."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, 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 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Pleasures Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,714 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 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 150,012 psis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. 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 176,405th in the world and 8,498th in the Pacific for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 11.24 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
