The Galactist State of Plazland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by ᴘʀᴇᴍ'ʏᴇʀ-ᴍɪɴɪꜱᴛʀ ʙᴏɢᴅᴀɴ with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, enslaved workforce, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 6.811 billion Plazans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Janus. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Plazanic economy, worth a remarkable 1,721 trillion Plazanic digital Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 252,704 Plazanic digital Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

ᴘʀᴇᴍ'ʏᴇʀ-ᴍɪɴɪꜱᴛʀ ʙᴏɢᴅᴀɴ affectionately nicknames supporters by number, the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plazland's national animal is the Plazanic Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Plazland is ranked 218,719th in the world and 8,877th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -674.77 on the Hayek Index.
