The Controlled Lands of Pikatroid is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pikatroid with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.905 billion Pikatroidians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Environment, and Spirituality also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pikatroid City. The income tax rate is 100%.
The large but stagnant Pikatroidian economy, worth 664 trillion Unobtaniums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Arms Manufacturing industry. Average income is 41,772 Unobtaniums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pikatroid's national animal is the Nummy Muffin Coocol Butter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.
