The PS2 Puppet of Pterodoria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Someone with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.56 billion Pterodorians 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 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 8,550 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 587,289 Pteralurias, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,500,921 per year while the poor average 5,282, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

A citizen who thinks a slave is a deadbeat is entitled to make the descriptor literally true, the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest Pterodactyl hunting institutions, souvenir shops that sell alphorns are taking advantage of gullible tourists, and photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls. 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, and its national religion is Business.

Pterodoria is ranked 193,503rd in the world and 6,279th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 26.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
