The 🙈🙉🙊 of Penguin Dictators is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Alastor Pnoote with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 21.914 billion 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penguinia. The average income tax rate is 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Penguinian economy, worth a remarkable 5,842 trillion Krillems a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 266,592 Krillems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Being wrong on the internet has been classified as digital terrorism, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, and workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Penguin Dictators's national animal is the Frilly Elephant Bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Penguism.

Penguin Dictators is ranked 147,873rd in the world and 135th in Wintreath for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.6 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
