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 remarkable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.049 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 3,096 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 134,334 platies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

No one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, and children play ring-around-the-rosey around bonfires of videogame cartridges. 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 128,775th in the world and 14th in Ohio for Most Developed, scoring 47.55 on the Human Development Index.
