The Democratic States of Plasitades is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 319 million Plasitadesians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.5%.

The very strong Plasitadesian economy, worth 22.3 trillion Tokens a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is 69,884 Tokens, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the government spends twice as much reclaiming lost settlements from the sea as it could've on coastal defences, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Plasitades's national animal is the worm, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Plasitades is ranked 126,244th in the world and 5,203rd in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 260.56 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
