Socialist Platypus

Population7.435 billion

LeaderRobert Plater


The Puddle of Socialist Platypus is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Robert Plater with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 7.435 billion Platypusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Typus. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Socialist Platypusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,145 trillion Rovas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 154,054 Rovas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, the nation's infamous rickshaw ambulances often double as hearses, undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, and government expenses are beyond compare. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Platypus's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Pastafarism.

Socialist Platypus is ranked 17,603rd in the world and 34th in Conch Kingdom for Most Income Equality, scoring 81.5 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
