The Anaerobic State of Very Fat Penguins is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mighty Penguin with an iron fist, and notable for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.973 billion Very Fat Penguinsians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Religion & Spirituality, the Environment, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penguin City. The average income tax rate is 82%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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 government is financing an extremely costly war against malaria, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, all weapon research has been banned, and the mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of Very Fat Penguins's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Very Fat Penguins's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Secret, and its currency is the Penguin Pengo.

Very Fat Penguins is ranked 6th in Quiet Cottage on the Edge of the Cosmos and 35,371st in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 40 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
