The Federation of The Penguin Confederacy is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Alexander Berg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, parental licensing program, and national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.64 billion Penguins 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Glacial Capital. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Penguin Confederacy economy, worth a remarkable 1,029 trillion Fish Scale Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 182,531 Fish Scale Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around The Glacial Capital, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Penguin Confederacy's national animal is the Orange Trout, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Penguin Confederacy is ranked 984th in the world and 665th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 147 Valid Endorsements.
