The Community of Penkine is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.974 billion Penkyne enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Penquin economy, worth 246 trillion penquans a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is 61,923 penquans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom, the government has solemnly sworn not to look up other nations' internet browsing history if the favor is returned, terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests, and in a baffling press conference Leader proudly dismantled a broken door. Crime is totally unknown. Penkine's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Penkine is ranked 157,978th in the world and 5,724th in the West Pacific for Most Average, scoring 33.63 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
