The Single-ship Space Empire of The Platypus Space Fleet is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Platy the Perrypus with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, devout population of 4.086 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, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Zealander Mothership. The average income tax rate is 43.6%.

The powerhouse Platypus Space Fleetian economy, worth 420 trillion Spacecraft a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 102,930 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 140,701st in the world and 34th in The Interdimensional Community for Most Extreme, scoring 13.36 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
