“Pengwins 1 : Penguins 0”
|Category: Iron Fist Consumerists|
Regional Influence: Ambassador
The Icy Nation of Pengwiniah is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ashuas Trnalos with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 21.007 billion 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.
Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, and Harry Potter books are banned. 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.
