The Federation of The Penguin Confederacy is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alexander Berg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.779 billion Penguins 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, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Glacial Capital. The average income tax rate is 78.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Penguin Confederacyian economy, worth 833 trillion Fish Scale Coins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 174,410 Fish Scale Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Millions of Fish Scale Coins have been thrown into a project to find the cure for Mad Silver-stripe Round Herring Disease, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, and rumor has it that the government was paid off by the mob to allow casinos to reopen. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Penguin Confederacy's national animal is the Silver-stripe Round Herring, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Penguin Confederacy is ranked 152,587th in the world and 8,405th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 45.7 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
