The Dominion of Platinia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Exarch Sera with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, prohibition of alcohol, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 16.429 billion Platinians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Platinian economy, worth a remarkable 3,329 trillion Ploras a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 202,681 Ploras, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government-sanctioned factory-smashing has the Luddites of Platinia rejoicing, a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, and a government program is underway to revitalize Platinia's beaches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very 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 Yellowism.

Platinia is ranked 191,958th in the world and 4th in The Empire of Draconic States for Most Politically Free, scoring 27.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
