The Controlled Lands of Pikatroid is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Pikatroid with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.329 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 and Environment 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 683 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 41,864 Unobtaniums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, an increasingly villainous series of sports coaches are demanding the national mascot's true identity, the nation is proudly the least fertile in the Pacific, and underground copulation clubs have sprung up in major cities. 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.
