The PS2 Puppet of Pterodoria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Someone with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, enslaved workforce, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 15.941 billion Pterodorians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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 9,918 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 622,193 Pteralurias, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,827,905 per year while the poor average 5,595, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

Someone's opponents have adopted dogs to chase away the mailman, citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and the weather in Pterodoria City is always 'pigeons with a chance of droppings'. 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 196,773rd in the world and 7,100th in the South Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 303.62 milliStalins.
