The GEQPL of PenguinPies is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Delegate GEQP Lady of TSP with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, disturbing lack of elderly people, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 21.297 billion PenguinPiesians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized morass — 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 93.5%.

The very strong PenguinPiesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,736 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, highly specialized black market in Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 128,494 Oreos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Every week is blindness awareness week, the PenguinPiesian football team for the Maxxmas ceasefire consists only of Intelligence Corps personnel, wars of expansion are described as "peacekeeping operations", and the nation is under martial law. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is PIE.

PenguinPies is ranked 70,013th in the world and 1,184th in the South Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 217,443 Standard Monetary Units.
