The Empire of Platinia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Empress Sera with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 15.221 billion Platinians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Esiryn's Reach. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Platinian economy, worth a remarkable 3,346 trillion Ploras a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 219,867 Ploras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, vehicular homicide by Platinian ambassadors is a leading cause of death throughout the world's capital cities, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Platinia's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Order of Midgardsormr.

Platinia is ranked 207,088th in the world and 82nd in St Abbaddon for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.26 Crimes Per Hour.
