The Ends of the Earth of Pterodaxtyl is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Daryn Martin with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, enslaved workforce, and public floggings. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.822 billion Dumbasses are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magicant. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 59.9%.

The strong Daxtastic economy, worth 146 trillion Star Dusts 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, quite specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. 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 51,838 Star Dusts, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, parties that are too noisy are broken up to prevent disturbing wildlife, and children are encouraged to chase pigeons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pterodaxtyl's national animal is the The Archduke's Toucans and Froot loops, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cilantroism.

Pterodaxtyl is ranked 59,107th in the world and 144th in The Black Hawks for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,652.4 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
