The Icy Nation of Pengwiniah is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Ashuas Trnalos with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.952 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."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sign. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Pengiwiniahian economy, worth a remarkable 3,815 trillion beaks a year, is driven entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 166,217 beaks, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, healthcare funding has been cut, and urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pengwiniah's national animal is the pengwin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pengwini-ism.

Pengwiniah is ranked 74th in Antarctica and 112,525th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -8 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
