The Empress Queen Princess Lady of PenguinPies is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Queen Princess Lady of TSP with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, museums and concert halls, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.878 billion PenguinPiesians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of PenguinPies City. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The strong PenguinPiesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,585 trillion Oreos a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 99,883 Oreos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, patriotic citizens chant "there's only one PenguinPies" at foreigners, and the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PenguinPies's national animal is the Hippo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is PIE.

PenguinPies is ranked 177,926th in the world and 6,080th in the South Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -3.28 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
