The Supreme leaders of Pingu Armada is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mr nooty noot with an iron fist, and remarkable for its vat-grown people, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.838 billion Pinguses are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mt vinson. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pingu Armadan economy, worth a remarkable 1,010 trillion Pinguoos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. 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 an amazing 208,844 Pinguoos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and Pingu Armadan scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pingu Armada's national animal is the Pingu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Pingu Armada is ranked 4,899th in the world and 4th in The Interdimensional Community for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 32,343.69 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
