The Puddle of Socialist Platypus is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Robert Plater with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 6.756 billion Platypusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Typus. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Socialist Platypusian economy, worth a remarkable 1,043 trillion Rovas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 154,480 Rovas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, the nation's infamous rickshaw ambulances often double as hearses, undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, and government expenses are beyond compare. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Platypus's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Pastafarism.

Socialist Platypus is ranked 97,736th in the world and 138th in Conch Kingdom for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 167,500 Standard Monetary Units.
