The Kingdom of Platonalandopolis is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Sumo Filósofo Rey with an iron fist, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, enslaved workforce, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.329 billion Platonalandopolisians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Platonalandódemos. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Platonalandopolisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,412 trillion Drakmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 169,632 Drakmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Sumo Filósofo Rey's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, Amnesty Interregional has condemned Platonalandopolis for ignoring crimes against humanity, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and workers' complaints never reach central planning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Platonalandopolis's national animal is the Dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Geogénesis.

Platonalandopolis is ranked 22,196th in the world and 1st in United Splendid Marmotlands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,096.85 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
