The Federal Military Republic of Penguinya is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by High Commander Sir Joseph Beakson with an iron fist, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, infamous sell-swords, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.275 billion Penguinians, 14 million of whom are zombies, are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Z101. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Penguinian economy, worth 167 trillion Beakerons a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,656 Beakerons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular, diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, the once prosperous capital is in utter decline, and advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Penguinya's national animal is the Great Auk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Pengu.

Penguinya is ranked 188,995th in the world and 6,210th in the Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 1 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
