The PS2 Puppet of Pterodoria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Someone with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, feral children, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.337 billion Pterodorians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pterodoria City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pterodorian economy, worth a remarkable 7,398 trillion Pteralurias a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 554,753 Pteralurias, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,196,138 per year while the poor average 4,990, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

Supermodels maintain their skinny form by running away from government officials, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, and procrastination is a national sport. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pterodoria's national animal is the Pterodactyl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Pterodoria is ranked 640th in the world and 24th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 12,286.83 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
