The Democratic States of Plutayah is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate population of 417 million Plutayans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Subellia. The average income tax rate is 59.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Plutayan economy, worth 19.5 trillion Jotarches a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 46,806 Jotarches, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, Plutayan husbands are dead good at fathering kids, and turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plutayah's national animal is the python, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Plutayah is ranked 109,905th in the world and 5,297th in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,191.83 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
