The Anaerobic State of Very Fat Penguins is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mighty Penguin with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.819 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 84%, 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.

Some members of Parliament are illiterate, the military has grudgingly released all top secret information in an effort for greater transparency, the government seizes all major gold finds, and the nation is completely gun-free. 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 9th in Quiet Cottage on the Edge of the Cosmos and 27,251st in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 37 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
