Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.763 billion Pleasures Islandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt 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 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Pleasures Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,727 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 146,833 psis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, the endangered saltwater humpback human is only seen in captivity programs, major internet servers have acquired citizenship, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 4,802nd in the world and 99th in the Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.13 Years.
