The United Soviet States of Flying-Penguins is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The People of Penguinium with an even hand, and renowned for its vat-grown people, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, devout population of 1.271 billion flying penguins are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penguinium. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Penguin economy, worth 163 trillion fishies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 128,754 fishies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The People of Penguinium is famed for giving great back rubs, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Penguin weed picker are way up, government critics have noticed a lot of new neighbors with expensive surveillance equipment in their garages, and wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flying-Penguins's national animal is the Adélie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

Flying-Penguins is ranked 103,940th in the world and 796th in The Communist Bloc for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.35 percentage of bribes refused.
