The Dictatorship of Piedra Negra is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Generalissimo Mendoza with an iron fist, and remarkable for its suspicion of poets. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 19.89 billion 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.

Construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, a spate of enforced closures has left 'Government FM' as the nation's only radio station, and government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries. 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 14th in Antarctica and 4,412th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 7 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
