The Holy Empire of The Quiescent Platypus is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Platypus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.177 billion Quiescent Platypuses enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halcyon Falls. The average income tax rate is 21.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Quiescent Platypusian economy, worth 162 trillion Little Debbie's Mini Frosted Donuts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 138,113 Little Debbie's Mini Frosted Donuts, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty, the The Quiescent Platypus Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, autocrats are persona non grata, and farm turkeys are given high doses of antidepressants to take their minds off the holiday season. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Quiescent Platypus's national animal is the Platypus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Platypism.

The Quiescent Platypus is ranked 67,852nd in the world and 110th in Spiritus for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,627.35 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
