The Allied States of Pinguioris is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Jacob John Henry Lamais with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.901 billion Pinguiorisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Appaloosa City. The average income tax rate is 32.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pinguiorisian economy, worth 325 trillion Sapphire Horseshoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 171,264 Sapphire Horseshoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, and dinosaur breeders have a yabba-dabba-doo gay old time in Pinguioris. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pinguioris's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity and Equestrianism.

Pinguioris is ranked 128,948th in the world and 7,227th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 49.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
