The Dictatorship of Piedra Negra is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Generalissimo Mendoza with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 20.802 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 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Mandatory daycare is provided by the government, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, most citizens in Piedra Negra are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, and the adult unemployment rate nears 100% as all available jobs have been filled by young children. 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 65th in Antarctica and 109,305th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -51 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
