The Icy Nation of Pengwiniah is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Ashuas Trnalos with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 29.475 billion Pengwiniahns 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sign. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Pengiwiniahian economy, worth a remarkable 4,926 trillion beaks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 167,142 beaks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Pengwiniah Blood Tithe, government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, women who display their ankles are shunned by society, and long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pengwiniah's national animal is the pengwin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pengwini-ism.

Pengwiniah is ranked 155,927th in the world and 50th in Antarctica for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 18.15 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
