The Pleasantly Pleased Planet of The Pleased Platypuses is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Platypus Pete with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 19.777 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, moralistic government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Defense is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Pleased Platypus economy, worth a remarkable 2,938 trillion platies a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,596 platies, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Platypus Pete is worshipped as a god, police officers have been re-kitted with designer uniforms and gold plated handcuffs, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and criminals are executed and their property seized. 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 3rd in Ohio and 6,367th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
