Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Fiefdom of Pleasures Island is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, enforced nudity, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.821 billion Pleasures Islandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pleasures Island City. The average income tax rate is 84.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Pleasures Islandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,172 trillion psis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 169,426 psis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Pleasures Islandian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, Pleasures Island has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, and sections of the police receive paramilitary training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pleasures Island's national animal is the human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.

Pleasures Island is ranked 3,304th in the world and 80th in the Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.72 Years.
