The Hedonistic Pursuits of Wrigleys Pleasure Planet is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Horatio Wrigley with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.143 billion Employees are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Public Transport, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Debauche. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Pleasure Planet economy, worth 676 trillion Federation Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 110,168 Federation Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 332,493 per year while the poor average 28,440, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

Public shaming is the bedrock of Pleasure Planet society, immigrants are told to pull themselves up by their worn-out budget bootstraps, the government insists that a ghost voted ten million times in the last election, and airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Wrigleys Pleasure Planet's national animal is the Android, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Silicon Heaven.

Wrigleys Pleasure Planet is ranked 250,836th in the world and 147th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.55 bananas ingested per day.
