Pig and Platypus Land

Population6.094 billion

Currencygarlic bread

The Seafaring Land of Pig and Platypus Land is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its absence of drug laws and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 6.094 billion Pig and Platypus Landians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Social Policy, Public Transport, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.5%.

The strong Pig and Platypus Landian economy, worth 317 trillion garlic breads a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 52,171 garlic breads, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 354,705 per year while the poor average 2,803, a ratio of 126 to 1.

The flesh-eating lost souls that wander at night serve as a major tourist attraction (Pig and Platypus Land has found 1 easter eggs), scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied platypus, 'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, and platypuss with strange deformities like three eyes and tentacles have been seen prancing through the countryside where industrial waste is dumped. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Pig and Platypus Land's national animal is the platypus.

Pig and Platypus Land is ranked 124,044th in the world and 5,132nd in Osiris for Largest Black Market, with 265 billion Standard Monetary Units.
