The Dictatorship of Piedra Negra is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Generalissimo Mendoza with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 28.12 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 81.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saucy economy, worth a remarkable 4,467 trillion Gatoes a year, is quite specialized 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 158,859 Gatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

New cases of Asbestosis are cropping up as quickly as hospitals can deal with them, Piedra Negra's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Gato battlesuits, and the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees. 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 140,327th in the world and 46th in Antarctica for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.62 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
