The Dictatorship of Piedra Negra is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Generalissimo Mendoza with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 20.479 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.

School uniforms are compulsory, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 51st in Antarctica and 110,829th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -38 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
