The Astral Observatory of Pterodaxtyl is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Dax Lacerta with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, infamous sell-swords, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 3.073 billion Dumbasses are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magicant. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58.0%.

The thriving Daxtastic economy, worth 169 trillion Star dusts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 55,006 Star dusts, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's historic treasures have been sold off to Maxtopia's "Museum of Daxtastic Artifacts That They're Too Stupid to Appreciate", religious fanatics complain of being held down by the earth's gravitational field, criminals are thrown to the The Archduke's Toucans and Froot loops to repay their debt to society, and blue sky thinkers are reminded that the firmament is actually more of a grey-ish colour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pterodaxtyl's national animal is the The Archduke's Toucans and Froot loops, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cilantroism.

Pterodaxtyl is ranked 14,007th in the world and 21st in The Black Hawks for Best Weather, with 183 Meters Of Sunlight.
