The Kingdom of Platonalandopolis is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sumo Filósofo Rey with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, lack of airports, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.618 billion Platonalandopolisians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Platonalandódemos. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Platonalandopolisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,444 trillion Drakmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 167,615 Drakmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, a government program is underway to revitalize Platonalandopolis's beaches, gambling is outlawed, and the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Platonalandopolis's national animal is the Dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Geogénesis.

Platonalandopolis is ranked 223,093rd in the world and 6th in United Splendid Marmotlands for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -32.1 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
