The ENDORSE TEPERTOPIA of Pterodoria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Someone with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, keen interest in outer space, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.735 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 an astonishing 11,771 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 663,723 Pteralurias, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,216,954 per year while the poor average 5,968, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

Eight-year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, the nation's "surprisingly chill" military is renowned for its horrendous war crimes, aggressive promotion of global warming puts polar bears on thin ice, and university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts. 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 4th in the world and 1st in the South Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 421.92 crimes per hour.
