The ENDORSE TEPERTOPIA of Pterodoria is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Someone with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.659 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, well-organized 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 11,675 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 661,176 Pteralurias, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,193,087 per year while the poor average 5,945, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

Tumbleweeds made of litter adorn city streets, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, slavers view "what did your last slave die of" as a request for a demonstration, and books are considered luxuries only available to the incredibly wealthy. 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 94th in the world and 3rd in the South Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 37,471.22 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
