The Icy Nation of Pengwiniah is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ashuas Trnalos with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 22.064 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.

The eerie remains of the final shuttle mission orbit in silence as a sober reminder of the abandoned space program, government policy is dictated by Pengwini-ism, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, and churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings'. 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 4th in Antarctica and 193rd in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 907 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
