The Purple Pied Piper of T-Rex is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Rex Middlefinger with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.85 billion T-Rexians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theropodus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 30.3%.

The frighteningly efficient T-Rexian economy, worth 304 trillion $$s a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 106,960 $$s, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 967,391 per year while the poor average 1,413, a ratio of 684 to 1.

It needn't take a lot of snot and tears to fix a problem, the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, closed universities are currently being converted into McRonald's restaurants, and a typical peasant's life cycle leads from birth to the gallows. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. T-Rex's national animal is the Death's-head hawkmoth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

T-Rex is ranked 94,021st in the world and 20th in BLITZKRIEG for Most Authoritarian, with 750.8 milliStalins.
