The Federal Military Republic of Penguinya is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by High Commander Sir Joseph Beakson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 870 million Penguinians 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 medium-sized, 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 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Penguinian economy, worth 87.3 trillion Beakerons a year, is fairly diversified and 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 100,392 Beakerons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Penguinya's army is full of two-metre tall super-soldiers, the nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, the Master Race is being overrun by the genetically-inferior, and High Commander Sir Joseph Beakson has just been declared ruler of Penguinya in an international press conference. 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.

Penguinya is ranked 18,083rd in the world and 484th in the Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.3 Years.
