The Grounded Aircraft of Planes is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by D Havilliand with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.876 billion Planesians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bombardier-Boeing-Airbus city. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Planesian economy, worth 147 trillion engines a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,783 engines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, the government seeks peaceful forum with terrorists, and police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Planes's national animal is the syrian hamster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Airplane Worship.

Planes is ranked 77,040th in the world and 3,893rd in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 21.65 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
