The Plutonian Empire

The United Planets of The Plutonian Empire is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Eugene Empire with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 38.166 billion Plutonians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The large, corrupt, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pisces Centauri. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Plutonian economy, worth a remarkable 6,243 trillion Plutos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 163,586 Plutos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recent events have left citizens both shaken and stirred, taxpayers cringe whenever someone brings up the Former Antagonist Reparations Treaty, tipsy fans frequently invite themselves to the board meetings of sports clubs, and orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents. Crime is totally unknown. The Plutonian Empire's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Plutonianism.

The Plutonian Empire is ranked 2,549th in the world and 1st in Terraformed Pluto for Highest Drug Use, scoring 117 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
