The Free Land of Pedrito is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.556 billion Pedritans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pedrossa. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.2%.

The all-consuming Pedritan economy, worth 377 trillion florins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 82,907 florins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 536,672 per year while the poor average 5,135, a ratio of 104 to 1.

Becoming a missionary is a sure-fire route to martyrdom, the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Pedrito' is a smash hit, most pop videos prominently feature the Pedritan flag, and nihilistic thrill-seekers claim that suicide by roller coaster is the ultimate life experience. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Pedrito's national animal is the wild dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Pedrito the Invisible Dog.

Pedrito is ranked 51,672nd in the world and 1st in Dodeca for Highest Economic Output, with 377 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
