The PS2 Puppet of Pterodoria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Someone with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 14.837 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 8,827 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 594,950 Pteralurias, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,572,692 per year while the poor average 5,351, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

It isn't only obsequious grandees who produce a lot of manure at state occasions, diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left, a signed affidavit from a prominent anti-corruption advocate declares that she is in fact a crook after all, and most people suffer from some form of hearing loss. 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 244,919th in the world and 7,999th in the South Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -937.92 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
