The Federation of The Penguin Confederacy is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Alexander Berg with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.208 billion Penguins are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Penguin Confederacy economy, worth a remarkable 1,347 trillion Fish Scale Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 186,904 Fish Scale Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rumor has it that Alexander Berg has won three lotteries in a row, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, and environmental legislation occurs cyclically. 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 171,834th in the world and 8,918th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 28.77 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
