Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Anaerobic State of Very Fat Penguins is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mighty Penguin with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.728 billion Very Fat Penguinsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government prioritizes Spirituality, although Environment, Welfare, and Education are also considered important, while Administration isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penguin City. The average income tax rate is 59.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Very Fat Penguinsian economy, worth 141 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 51,715 Penguin Pengoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny, the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and Mighty Penguin's mistress is the belle at many state balls. Crime 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 17th in Quiet Cottage on the Edge of the Cosmos and 135,328th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -3 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
