Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Pleasantly Pleased Planet of The Pleased Platypuses is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Platypus Pete with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 22.011 billion Pleased Platypuses are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. The average income tax rate is 2.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Pleased Platypus economy, worth a remarkable 3,348 trillion platies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,106 platies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, chickens roam the streets freely, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The Pleased Platypuses's national animal is the pleased platypus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

The Pleased Platypuses is ranked 12th in Ohio and 111,568th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 8 on the Enoch Index.
