Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Pleasantly Pleased Planet of The Pleased Platypuses is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Platypus Pete with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.546 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, although Defense is also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Pleased Platypus economy, worth a remarkable 2,981 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 132,228 platies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Private law firms are unheard of, teenagers stay out into the wee hours of the morning "stargazing", military service is compulsory, and military spending is on the increase. Crime 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 11,355th in the world and 1st in Ohio for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,521.53 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
