The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.384 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 98%. 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.

X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, tourists are flocking to the newly-built MeteorLand family resort, and citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements. 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 3,076th in the Pacific and 94,159th in the world for Best Weather, with -26 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
