The Divine National Worker State of Pletamia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Konrad Sinclair with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.496 billion Pletamians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Environment are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aesium. The income tax rate is 100%.

The all-consuming Pletamian economy, worth a remarkable 3,066 trillion Plentonics a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an amazing 322,947 Plentonics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign students are expected to have a Kegmeister Grade Average of 36-24-36 to qualify for university, truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, the steaks are too high for ambassadors to butcher foreign relationships, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pletamia's national animal is the Black Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Pletamian Christianity.

Pletamia is ranked 101,865th in the world and 21st in The Roleplay Chessboard for Most Primitive, scoring -31.78 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
