Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Dictatorship of Piedra Negra is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Generalissimo Mendoza with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 26.509 billion Sloshed clown faced Piedrans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Malbec. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saucy economy, worth a remarkable 4,176 trillion Gatoes a year, is fairly diversified and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 157,534 Gatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The world outside is only known of in folklore, anti-government demagogues have a devil of a time evading authorities, school children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel, and glamping Sloshed clown faced Piedrans won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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.

Piedra Negra is ranked 27,048th in the world and 29th in Antarctica for Largest Black Market, with 3.95 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
