The Platypus Space Fleet

Population2.549 billion

CapitalThe Zealander Mothership
LeaderPlaty the Perrypus


The Single-ship Space Empire of The Platypus Space Fleet is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Platy the Perrypus with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, devout population of 2.549 billion Platypeople are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Law & Order, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Zealander Mothership. The average income tax rate is 44.2%.

The powerhouse Platypus Space Fleetian economy, worth 261 trillion Spacecraft a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,503 Spacecraft, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's air missiles have killed thousands of Brasilistan military personnel, the might of the nation's military are undertaking a long march to colonisation in Brasilistan, the nation has gained millions of new citizens overnight, and international tensions are high as The Platypus Space Fleet threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Platypus Space Fleet's national animal is the Platypus, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans, and its national religion is Platypusism.

The Platypus Space Fleet is ranked 34,912th in the world and 249th in Chicken overlords for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,228.07 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
