The Icy Nation of Pengwiniah is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Ashuas Trnalos with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.403 billion Pengwiniahns 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."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic 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.

Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', immigrant herding has become a national pastime, bloodthirsty zealots regularly participate in the Friday Night Stoning of Adulterers, and child adoption by homosexual couples has been outlawed. 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 Pengwini-ism, and its currency is the beak.

Pengwiniah is ranked 3rd in Antarctica and 325th in the world for Best Weather, with 794 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
