The Dictatorship of Piedra Negra is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Generalissimo Mendoza with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 20.865 billion Sloshed clown faced Piedrans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Law & Order, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Equality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malbec. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', most citizens in Piedra Negra are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, and all news sources are under strict government control. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Piedra Negra's national animal is the Jackalope, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Chomo.

Piedra Negra is ranked 70th in Antarctica and 112,011th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -44 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
