The Pleasantly Pleased Planet of The Pleased Platypuses is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Platypus Pete with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, hard-working population of 19.539 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Defence and Education are secondary priorities. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and the mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of The Pleased Platypuses's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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, and its currency is the platy.

The Pleased Platypuses is ranked 7th in Ohio and 53,445th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -16 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
