The Unified Federation of ThePenguinLand is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Pingu with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.227 billion PenguinLandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of PenguinLandia. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving PenguinLandian economy, worth 213 trillion Pelosoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 95,933 Pelosoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A vast monorail network carries people all over the country, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, economic planning is exalted as a human art form, and Emperor Pingu is frequently seen begging critics to stop insulting the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ThePenguinLand's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Penguinism.

ThePenguinLand is ranked 141,942nd in the world and 149th in The Western Isles for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -174.58 on the Hayek Index.
