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 notable for its avant-garde cinema, public floggings, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 27.017 billion Sloshed clown faced Piedrans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saucy economy, worth a remarkable 4,233 trillion Gatoes a year, is 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 156,701 Gatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, credit scores fluctuate wildly with every change of government, the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Piedra Negra' is a smash hit, and with increasingly clear skies nobody seems to mind the electricity bill going through the roof. 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.

Piedra Negra is ranked 1,594th in the world and 7th in Antarctica for Healthiest Citizens, with 26.3 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
