Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Pleasantly Pleased Planet of The Pleased Platypuses is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Platypus Pete with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.902 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 3,056 trillion platies a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 133,476 platies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, and the armed forces are vetting the political loyalties of its remaining officers. 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 700th in the world and 1st in Ohio for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 14,069.97 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
