The Free Archipelago of Platyperia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Seany with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, lack of airports, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.226 billion Semi-Aquatic Egg-laying Mammals hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Perry City. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Semi-Aquatic economy, worth a remarkable 1,107 trillion Platypus Papers a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,661 Platypus Papers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the fattest folk in Platyperia look to be the happiest ones, and Seany's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Perry City generates millions of views. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Platyperia's national animal is the Purple Striped Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Platyperia is ranked 5,642nd in the world and 255th in Osiris for Most Developed, scoring 93.37 on the Human Development Index.
