The Quite Clever Nomadic Peoples of The Platinum States is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Chief Geek Wesley Gimpleton with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 1.39 billion Platinum Statesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Grand Royal Logia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.0%.

The powerhouse Platinum Statesian economy, worth 116 trillion doleuros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Average income is 84,136 doleuros, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 296,640 per year while the poor average 17,266, a ratio of 17.2 to 1.

The government's official stance on religion is that it is so very silly, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, civil servants are no longer allowed to cross their t's, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Platinum States's national animal is the human and its national religion is We Banned It.

The Platinum States is ranked 98,362nd in the world and 6,011th in Lazarus for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
