The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.979 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."

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.

Schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, and graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail. 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 3,890th in the Pacific and 104,103rd in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -4 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
