Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 11.619 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, well-organized 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 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Pleasures Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,792 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 154,251 psis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and students cut up leftover psis during Arts and Crafts. 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 4,193rd in the world and 109th in the Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 4,255.46 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
