The PS2 Puppet of Pterodoria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Someone with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.177 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 an astonishing 11,176 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 650,655 Pteralurias, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,094,527 per year while the poor average 5,851, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

Jennifer Government is a bestseller, jollity-related fatalities are on the increase, nervous homeowners have been blamed for rising death rates amongst carol singers and locksmiths, and you can say what you like about the genocidal murderers that rule Pterodoria but at least the trains run on time. 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 270,170th in the world and 12,575th in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 0.47 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
