Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Pleasantly Pleased Planet of The Pleased Platypuses is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Platypus Pete with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, triple-decker prams, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.838 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, corrupt, 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 frighteningly efficient Pleased Platypus economy, worth a remarkable 3,194 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 134,026 platies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Sexuality-questioning teenagers are placed in locked rooms with dirty magazines and lewd posters, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, the nation's once beautiful countryside have turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. 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 144,832nd in the world and 18th in Ohio for Most Armed, with 0.18 Weapons Per Person.
