The PS2 Puppet of Pterodoria is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Someone with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.154 billion Pterodorians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pterodoria City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Pterodorian economy, worth a remarkable 9,143 trillion Pteralurias a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is a breathtaking 603,344 Pteralurias, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,651,324 per year while the poor average 5,426, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, the end of autumn is celebrated with a bonfire of designer bags, the nation's countrysides are littered with landmines due to ongoing family disputes, and fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding". Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pterodoria's national animal is the Pterodactyl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Business.

Pterodoria is ranked 63,444th in the world and 1,292nd in the South Pacific for Most Stationary, with 353.13753093628 Days.
