The Ghost of Christmas Future of Pterodaxtyl is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Dax Lacerta with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, enforced nudity, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 1.788 billion Pterodaxtylians, all of whom are zombies, are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of David. The average income tax rate is 55.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Pterodaxtylian economy, worth 66.8 trillion Star Dusts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 31,753 Star Dusts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

National parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', bilingual Pterodaxtylians are viewed with suspicion, newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words', and foreign leaders never seem to want to shake hands with Dax Lacerta. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pterodaxtyl's national animal is the Vampire, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cilantroism.

Pterodaxtyl is ranked 179,258th in the world and 327th in The Black Hawks for Most Avoided, scoring 1.21 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
