The Borderlands of Pterodabtyl is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 358 million Pterodabtylians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Citadel. The average income tax rate is 28.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Pterodabtylian economy, worth 16.4 trillion Star dusts a year, is led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,689 Star dusts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists call Pterodabtylian beach towns "the fine coastline", laws are littered with references to cheese, traffic news is delivered to drivers via carrier pigeon, and all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of The Citadel. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pterodabtyl's national animal is the Pterodactyl.

Pterodabtyl is ranked 162,395th in the world and 17th in Entropy for Largest Black Market, with 95.7 billion Standard Monetary Units.
