The Pleasantly Pleased Planet of The Pleased Platypuses is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Platypus Pete with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working population of 18.844 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 concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Defence and Education are secondary priorities. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Beef-Based Agriculture.

Foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, and healthcare funding has been cut. Crime 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 5th in Ohio and 49,010th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -17 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
