The True communist pingus of The nation of Pingu is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by mr nooty noot with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.938 billion nation of pingus are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Vinson. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Pingu economy, worth 367 trillion pinguoos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 125,108 pinguoos, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

The "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, police pull people off the street for even mentioning the word plane, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The nation of Pingu's national animal is the pingu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is worshiping the supreme beings.

The nation of Pingu is ranked 27,244th in the world and 14th in Chicken overlords for Most Cultured, scoring 76 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
