The Allied States of Pinguioris is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Jacob John Henry Lamais with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, frequent executions, and pith helmet sales. The democratic, devout population of 4.04 billion Pinguiorisians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Appaloosa City. The average income tax rate is 13.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pinguiorisian economy, worth 759 trillion Sapphire Horseshoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 187,985 Sapphire Horseshoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In the Beginning was the Word and the Word was "Pragmatism", the armed forces pride themselves on being conventional and predictable, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany President Jacob John Henry Lamais to meetings with foreign heads of state, and employers are never quite sure if graduates' qualifications have any merit or meaning. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Pinguioris's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity and Equestrianism.

Pinguioris is ranked 200,839th in the world and 8,809th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.3 Obesity Rate.
