OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Anaerobic State of Very Fat Penguins is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Mighty Penguin with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.371 billion Very Fat Penguinsians 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.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penguin City. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Very Fat Penguinsian economy, worth 109 trillion Penguin Pengoes a year, is driven entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 46,164 Penguin Pengoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, the nationalized auto industry is adept at making durable little cars nobody wants to drive, Very Fat Penguins's schoolchildren are manufactured into a segregated bunch of soldiers, religious zealots, and computer technicians, and the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda. 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, and its national religion is Secret.

Very Fat Penguins is ranked 5th in Quiet Cottage on the Edge of the Cosmos and 12,488th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 51 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
