The Anaerobic State of Very Fat Penguins is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mighty Penguin with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate population of 1.785 billion Very Fat Penguinsians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

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 76%, 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.

There's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, churches frequently hold public 'contraception burnings', and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. 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 3rd in Quiet Cottage on the Edge of the Cosmos and 7,206th in the world for Best Weather, with 142 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
