The Kingdom of Greater Penguinia is a huge, safe nation, ruled by King Adél I DuPingouin with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 867 million Penguinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Frostbergh. The average income tax rate is 72.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Penguinese economy, worth 99.8 trillion Penguinian Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 115,101 Penguinian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grinning punters say that casino roulette is the greatest high that life has to offer, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Penguinia's national animal is the Emperor Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Greater Penguinia is ranked 25,988th in the world and 35th in Anteria for Lowest Crime Rates, with 85.28 law-abiding acts per hour.
