The Icy Nation of Pengwiniah is a gargantuan, devout nation, ruled by Ashuas Trnalos with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 22.2 billion Pengwiniahns 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.

People have to sneak out of the country in order to have sex, college students sell their most valuable possessions just to afford pizza, the education system is famed for its taxing exams, and reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service. 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 78th in Antarctica and 113,460th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -14 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
