The Unified Federation of ThePenguinLand is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Pingu with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.788 billion PenguinLandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of PenguinLandia. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse PenguinLandian economy, worth 306 trillion Pelosoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 109,788 Pelosoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, saying "don't do anything that Emperor Pingu wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, and school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ThePenguinLand's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Penguinism.

ThePenguinLand is ranked 11,276th in the world and 37th in The Western Isles for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 360.32 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
