Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Dictatorship of Piedra Negra is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Generalissimo Mendoza with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 23.857 billion Sloshed clown faced Piedrans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, with Education, Defense, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malbec. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hammered economy, worth a remarkable 4,665 trillion Gatoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 195,575 Gatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, much of Piedra Negra's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways, and citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements. 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.

Piedra Negra is ranked 4th in Antarctica and 1,378th in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 15 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
