Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.983 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pleasures Island City. The average income tax rate is 16.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Pleasures Islandian economy, worth 390 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 43,466 psis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, anyone dissenting from the state ideology is declared "mentally ill" and whisked away in a straitjacket, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. 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 6,017th in the Pacific and 135,898th in the world for Most Avoided, scoring -1,248.661 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
