The Icy Nation of Pengwiniah is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ashuas Trnalos with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 21.821 billion Pengwiniahians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Religion & Spirituality, Law & Order, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sign . The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Dark alleys and public toilets are filled with furtive sexual activities among teenagers and unmarried adults, many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, people are moving into treehouses in record numbers, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Pengwiniah's national animal is the pengwin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Pengwiniahnism, and its currency is the beak.

Pengwiniah is ranked 61st in Antarctica and 112,092nd in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -130 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
