The Pleasantly Pleased Planet of The Pleased Platypuses is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Platypus Pete with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, hard-working population of 19.398 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Defence and Education are on the agenda. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, and protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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, and its currency is the platy.

The Pleased Platypuses is ranked 6th in Ohio and 28,111th in the world for Nudest, with 184 Cheeks per Square Mile.
