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 remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, anti-smoking policies, and daily referendums. The cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.429 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, although Defense is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pleased Platypus economy, worth a remarkable 3,107 trillion platies a year, is 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 132,655 platies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The police insist that racism does not exist, the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings', and insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways. 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 152,273rd in the world and 13th in Ohio for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -5.56 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
