Platypus Bureaucracy

Population1.845 billion


The Dictatorship of Platypus Bureaucracy is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical population of 1.845 billion Platypuses 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Platypus Bureaucracyian economy, worth 22.3 trillion Sticks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 12,084 Sticks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Platypus Bureaucracy's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Platypus Bureaucracy is ranked 171,182nd in the world and 1st in NoTelegramtopia for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 3 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
