The Penguin Republic of Lowlandian States is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Penguin Emperor with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and parental licensing program. The compassionate population of 25.407 billion Lowlandian Statesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antarctopolis. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Lowlandian Statesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,715 trillion krills 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 106,878 krills, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', putting a mustache on a banknote is considered defacing a national monument, prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, and the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lowlandian States's national animal is the Lantern Fish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Penguin Worship.

Lowlandian States is ranked 14,131st in the world and 12th in Antarctica for Largest Governments, scoring 29.85 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
