The Orange Lieutenant Lameo of Pterodaxtyl is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Dax Lacerta with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, otherworldly petting zoo, and prohibition of alcohol. The democratic, devout population of 1.892 billion Pterodaxtylians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of David. The average income tax rate is 42.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Pterodaxtylian economy, worth 65.3 trillion Star Dusts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 34,487 Star Dusts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The David Times is sold out, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pterodaxtyl's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Cilantroism.

Pterodaxtyl is ranked 212,560th in the world and 413th in The Black Hawks for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -12.25 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
