The Icy Nation of Pengwiniah is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ashuas Trnalos with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 22.604 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.

The nation is constantly threatened with invasion but at least homosexuality in the military isn't a problem, illegal hunting is rife after veganism was recently made compulsory, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, and rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons. 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 77th in Antarctica and 121,547th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -254 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
