The Eternal Misfortune of Pterodoria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Someone with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 20.975 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 dominated by the Department of Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Environment and Law & Order are ignored. 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 15,562 trillion Pteralurias a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 741,956 Pteralurias, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,949,878 per year while the poor average 6,670, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

Small shoes often wash up on the beach, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, 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 17th in the world and 1st in Pencil Sharpeners Puppet Storage for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 6.95 million Standard Monetary Units.
