The Icy Nation of Pengwiniah is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Ashuas Trnalos with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.741 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.

Criminals are thrown to the pengwins to repay their debt to society, atheists are heavily taxed, suicide victims often leave behind cash to cover the cost of their fines, and the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Pengwiniah with a very polite populace. 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 7th in Antarctica and 1,582nd in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 157 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
