|Animal||The Archduke's Toucans and Froot loops|
The Astral Observatory of Pterodaxtyl is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dax Lacerta with an iron fist, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.259 billion Dumbasses are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magicant. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.7%.
The powerhouse Daxtastic economy, worth 192 trillion Star dusts 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, quite specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Pizza Delivery. 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 59,086 Star dusts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 181,429 per year while the poor average 14,881, a ratio of 12.2 to 1.
All weapon research has been banned, cowboys often wear wolfskin jackets to the saloon, red rinses are frequently applied to grey hair, and jabbing a baby's bottle at officials gets parents waved straight through immigration. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pterodaxtyl's national animal is the The Archduke's Toucans and Froot loops, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cilantroism.
