The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.55 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pleasures Island City. The average income tax rate is 99%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, police officers have been re-kitted with designer uniforms and gold plated handcuffs, the police force is rumoured to be made up of evil shadows with no souls, and a vast monorail network carries people all over the country. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the psi.

Pleasures Island is ranked 229th in the Pacific and 5,731st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 3.032 Stalins.
