Penguin Dictators

Population22.849 billion

LeaderAlastor Pnoote

AnimalFrilly Elephant Bird

The 🙈🙉🙊 of Penguin Dictators is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Alastor Pnoote with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 22.849 billion Penguinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penguinia. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Penguinian economy, worth a remarkable 6,162 trillion Krillems a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 269,686 Krillems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Penguinian Space Agency, the 'sing-a-long with Alastor Pnoote' album is a popular souvenir, and prison officers are bribed not to take bribes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Penguin Dictators's national animal is the Frilly Elephant Bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Penguism.

Penguin Dictators is ranked 214,154th in the world and 363rd in Wintreath for Most Inclusive, scoring 77.41 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
