The Federation of The Penguin Confederacy is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Alexander Berg with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.443 billion Penguins are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Glacial Capital. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Penguin Confederacy economy, worth a remarkable 1,382 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 common. Average income is an impressive 185,739 Fish Scale Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom, and the government has enacted freedom of information. 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 45,793rd in the world and 1,921st in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 3,447.21 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
