Population1.127 billion


The Democratic Republic of Pleasuretown is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.127 billion Pleasuretownians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 56.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Pleasuretownian economy, worth 76.1 trillion Pounds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 67,480 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, the government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, and in musicals everybody's a little bit racist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pleasuretown's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pleasuretown is ranked 179,770th in the world and 7,704th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.87 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
