The Divine Militant Worker State of Pletamia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Konrad Sinclair with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.066 billion Pletamians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aesium. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Pletamian economy, worth a remarkable 4,191 trillion Plentonics a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 347,388 Plentonics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Suppression of pro-democracy protests is a daily occurrence, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts, and sheepish teenagers are making eye contact with their parents for the first time in a decade during state-enforced 'no-phones hour'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pletamia's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Pletamian Christianity.

Pletamia is ranked 2,085th in the world and 1st in The Allied Republic for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 19,747.57 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
