The Puddle of Socialist Platypus is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Robert Plater with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 1.788 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Typus. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Socialist Platypusian economy, worth 231 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 129,457 Rovas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, and onions have been banned due to their tendency to cause eye irritation. 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 147,745th in the world and 312th in Conch Kingdom for Highest Drug Use, scoring 52.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
