The Democratic Republic of Pengnia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Pengil with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.739 billion Pengnians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penguitia. The average income tax rate is 47.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Pengnian economy, worth 99.4 trillion Pengs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,296 Pengs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, the government is constantly producing new maps to accommodate the continual renaming of cities, Brancalandian Brie isn't available anywhere in Pengnia, and schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students. Crime is totally unknown. Pengnia's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Pengnia is ranked 106,496th in the world and 4,142nd in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 42.57 on the Hayek Index.
