The Ultimate Soviet States of Playzlandia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed population of 533 million Playzlandians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Playzburg. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Playzlandian economy, worth 38.4 trillion Somings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 72,063 Somings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, citizens insist that there's no law against standing downwind when marijuana crops are burned off, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Playzlandia's national animal is the Fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Playzlandia is ranked 88,231st in the world and 32nd in depressed kelso for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,875.41 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
