The Anaerobic State of Very Fat Penguins is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Mighty Penguin with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate population of 1.767 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.

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 75%, 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.

Sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself, private law firms are unheard of, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and the nation refuses to discard its increasingly useless penny. 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 94th in Quiet Cottage on the Edge of the Cosmos and 31,850th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 81 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
