The Dictatorship of Piedra Negra is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Generalissimo Mendoza with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 21.337 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 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. 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 9th in Antarctica and 2,666th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 8 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
