The Holy Empire of The Quiescent Platypus is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Platypus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.544 billion Quiescent Platypuses are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs.
