The Grounded Aircraft of Planes is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by D Havilliand with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.079 billion Planesians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bombardier-Boeing-Airbus city. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Planesian economy, worth 171 trillion engines a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 82,424 engines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, aspiring pilots must be personally vetted by the Minister of Transportation before receiving their license, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Planes's national animal is the syrian hamster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Airplane Worship.

Planes is ranked 19,123rd in the world and 862nd in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 75.19 Effective Tax Rate.
