The United Kingdom of Penguania and Antarctica is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by King Elijah II with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.769 billion Penguanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Icemounton. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Penguanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,038 trillion Polar Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 189,300 Polar Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Monarchs only get custody of the royal crown on holidays and weekends, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, women give birth underneath so many blankets that the doctor can't feel the bump, and asking what someone does for a living is considered a faux pax for being potentially jobist. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Penguania and Antarctica's national animal is the Emperor Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Polarism.

Penguania and Antarctica is ranked 10,991st in the world and 4th in The Confederacy of Free Nations for Most Stationary, with 1,373.000162946 Days.
