Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Pleasantly Pleased Planet of The Pleased Platypuses is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Platypus Pete with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.109 billion Pleased Platypuses are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pleased Platypus economy, worth a remarkable 3,258 trillion platies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,172 platies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, tourist operators promise visitors tours of live burning shipwrecks and plane crash sites, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Pleased Platypuses any less frightened, and Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. The Pleased Platypuses's national animal is the pleased platypus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

The Pleased Platypuses is ranked 126,675th in the world and 13th in Ohio for Most Average, scoring 28.79 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
