The Single-ship Space Empire of The Platypus Space Fleet is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Platy the Perrypus with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, state-planned economy, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, devout population of 5.835 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, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Zealander Mothership. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.3%.

The powerhouse Platypus Space Fleetian economy, worth 642 trillion Spacecraft a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 110,110 Spacecraft, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 325,945 per year while the poor average 29,216, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.

Only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, military officials are questioning the policy of ceding the nation's territory in exchange for promises not to invade it, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, and whipping posts and lashes have been transferred to the Historical Museum of Platypus Space Fleetian Embarrassments. 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 and its national religion is Platypusism.

The Platypus Space Fleet is ranked 43,307th in the world and 1,402nd in Chicken overlords for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 5,091.86 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
