The Hedonistic Pursuits of Wrigleys Pleasure Planet is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Horatio Wrigley with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.439 billion Employees are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education, Public Transport, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Debauche. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Pleasure Planet economy, worth 728 trillion Federation Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 113,078 Federation Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 340,253 per year while the poor average 29,316, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

Red text rains down on the head of anyone who dares to step out of line (Wrigleys Pleasure Planet has found 2 easter eggs), the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, and deli patrons examine their roast beef for undetonated explosives. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Wrigleys Pleasure Planet's national animal is the Android, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Silicon Heaven.

Wrigleys Pleasure Planet is ranked 155,816th in the world and 92nd in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Smartest Citizens, with 25.99 quips per hour.
