The Dictatorship of Piedra Negra is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Generalissimo Mendoza with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed population of 19.865 billion 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 97%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, 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 torrontes.

Piedra Negra is ranked 10th in Antarctica and 2,110th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 12 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
