The Dictatorship of Piedra Negra is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Generalissimo Mendoza with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 20.62 billion Sloshed clown faced Piedrans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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.

Politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter', Max Barry is this year's Miss Piedra Negra, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. 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 torrontes.

Piedra Negra is ranked 22nd in Antarctica and 6,764th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 324 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
