The Rad Mad Dabbing Machine of Pterodaxtyl is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Mobile Raiding Queen with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory military service, and state-planned economy. The devout population of 1.173 billion Pterodaxtylians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stupidville. The average income tax rate is 36.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Pterodaxtylian economy, worth 35.1 trillion Pineapples a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 29,892 Pineapples, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

War criminals are given full state funerals, voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, most towns have their The Mobile Raiding Queen High School located on The Mobile Raiding Queen Street, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Pterodaxtyl's national animal is the Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mad King.

Pterodaxtyl is ranked 90,064th in the world and 372nd in The Black Hawks for Highest Poor Incomes, with 26,099.74 Standard Monetary Units.
