The Puddle of Socialist Platypus is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Robert Plater with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 4.478 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 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Socialist Platypusian economy, worth 641 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 143,288 Rovas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high, and Socialist Platypusian tourists are encouraged to hand out spare condoms to locals while on vacation. 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 35,603rd in the world and 123rd in Conch Kingdom for Most Income Equality, scoring 67.88 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
