The Dictatorship of Piedra Negra is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Generalissimo Mendoza with an iron fist, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 20.449 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.

Piedra Negra is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, almost half of the child population live rough on the streets, and school uniforms are compulsory. 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 11th in Antarctica and 2,581st in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 43 on the Enoch Index.
