The Single-ship Space Empire of The Platypus Space Fleet is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Platy the Perrypus with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.203 billion Platypeople are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Zealander Mothership. The average income tax rate is 40.1%.

The powerhouse Platypus Space Fleetian economy, worth 221 trillion Spacecraft a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,478 Spacecraft, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Retirement homes are filled with foreign war criminals, homeowners are evicted to make way for new runways, courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Platypeople, and the nation's air missiles have killed thousands of Brasilistan military personnel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Platypus Space Fleet's national animal is the Platypus, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans, and its national religion is Platypusism.

The Platypus Space Fleet is ranked 31,902nd in the world and 7th in Chicken overlords for Most Developed, scoring 65.47 on the Human Development Index.
