Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Pleasantly Pleased Planet of The Pleased Platypuses is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Platypus Pete with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 21.26 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 medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Pleased Platypus economy, worth a remarkable 3,146 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 147,995 platies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, 90% of active duty TPPAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, and cremation is compulsory for the deceased. Crime 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 1st in Ohio and 1,157th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring 145 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
