Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Pleasantly Pleased Planet of The Pleased Platypuses is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Platypus Pete with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, prohibition of alcohol, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.692 billion Pleased Platypuses are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The minute, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with Social Policy and Welfare not funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Pleased Platypus economy, worth a remarkable 3,020 trillion platies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 133,089 platies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government is frequently held to ransom by the increasing demands of bloodthirsty pirates, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and charged suspects often have to wait years before the courts have room to judge their trial. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 41,862nd in the world and 2nd in Ohio for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 45.34 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
