The Unified Federation of ThePenguinLand is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Pingu with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.499 billion PenguinLandians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of PenguinLandia. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The PenguinLandian economy, worth 103 trillion Pelosoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 68,792 Pelosoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers, and libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars. 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 12,961st in the world and 442nd in the South Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 77.53 Workforce Participation Rate.
