The Federation of The Penguin Confederacy is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Alexander Berg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.935 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 Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Glacial Capital. The average income tax rate is 84.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Penguin Confederacy economy, worth a remarkable 1,593 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 178,321 Fish Scale Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Money grows on trees, the nation threatens sanctions on islands only visible at low tide, red text rains down on the head of anyone who dares to step out of line (The Penguin Confederacy has found 2 easter eggs), and children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants. 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 Orange Trout, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Penguin Confederacy is ranked 3,028th in the world and 164th in The North Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 122.5 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
