The State of Pinguinis Australis is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ktenon Sheiaik with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, avowedly heterosexual populace, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.078 billion Pinguinis Australisians 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 large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aiken. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Pinguinis Australisian economy, worth a remarkable 4,986 trillion Teshken Credits a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is a breathtaking 617,326 Teshken Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Conspiracy theorists allege Aiken's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, armoured pyjamas are in fashion amongst the nation's nobility, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and the might of the entire Pinguinis Australisian Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pinguinis Australis's national animal is the Epolenk Parron, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Aluen.

Pinguinis Australis is ranked 271,520th in the world and 90th in Guer Aike Territories for Most Avoided, scoring 0.36 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
