The Scientific Utopia of Republic of Penguinian Astronautia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President John H Glenn with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, parental licensing program, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.002 billion Republic of Penguinian Astronautians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Trantor. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Republic of Penguinian Astronautian economy, worth a remarkable 1,585 trillion Unified Credits a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 198,132 Unified Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Frisbee games on college quadrangles are grounds for expulsion, environmental legislation occurs cyclically, there's no representation without taxation, and military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames. Crime is totally unknown. Republic of Penguinian Astronautia's national animal is the Bottlenose Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Scientology.

Republic of Penguinian Astronautia is ranked 85,844th in the world and 69th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Most Extreme, scoring 20.29 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
