The Totally Naked Fraternity of Retired WerePenguins is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Navigator George HW Blonde Brown with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, smutty television, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed population of 29.58 billion WerePenguins 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 minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dumont D Urville. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient WerePenguinian economy, worth a remarkable 6,798 trillion Tokens 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 a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 229,836 Tokens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, complaining about Christmas music in October is a ho-ho-horrendous crime, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, and programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Retired WerePenguins's national animal is the tourist, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Retired WerePenguins is ranked 11,833rd in the world and 4th in Antarctic Oasis for Most Corrupt Governments, with 79.1 Kickbacks Per Hour.
