The Purple Pied Piper of T-Rex is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Rex Middlefinger with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.351 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Theropodus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.1%.

The frighteningly efficient T-Rexian economy, worth 556 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 127,916 Golds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,157,332 per year while the poor average 1,684, a ratio of 686 to 1.

Air purifiers fight smoke machines on T-Rexian stage setups, the only position a woman can hold is baby-maker, wheelchair-enabled paratroopers need access ramps to get onto planes but not off them, and banning party poppers has been a real party pooper. Crime is all-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 77,847th in the world and 5th in BLITZKRIEG for Highest Drug Use, scoring 81.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
