Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Pleasantly Pleased Planet of The Pleased Platypuses is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Platypus Pete with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.253 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, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Pleased Platypus economy, worth a remarkable 3,124 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 134,348 platies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow. 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 153,538th in the world and 14th in Ohio for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -40.37 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
