In a vast and snowy wasteland on the edge of the known world is a single railway leading to a half-buried station. Inside is a comfortable, fourteen-level deep home with a radio station, Linklibrary, bunkrooms and stocked warehouse, tended to by penguins. A photograph on the wall lists two notable dates just inside the vestibule:
  • 1st Founding: Janurary 2, 2017

Regional Happenings


Penguia Regional Message Board

Radio stations are forbidden to play anything with too much drum or bass, the nation's orphanages and maternity wards have been nicknamed 'the Killbot Factories', the government is trying to clean up all the rubbish that has washed up on the shores of Bigtopia and Marche Noire, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock".

The government has awarded itself a month-long holiday to celebrate its achievements, exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, and many friends and relatives of Vladimir Clinton have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations.

Students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left, big game hunters travel to Amerikan Trumpites to try their hand at shark-shooting, and ghost regiments exist only on paper.

There is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes, the Holy Office of the Inquisition is the highest court in the land, raver DJ XStacy holds multiple medical degrees in chillaxing, and owning a tractor is widely regarded as an essential prerequisite to most government positions.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, animal liberationists receive government funding to break into animal research labs, and basic multiplication is all you need to know to have a child.

Hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, Corporate Amerikan farm salmon are known for being both horribly diseased and remarkably acrobatic, nobody ever questions the unquestioned rule that questions must always be asked, and the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth.

When shaking hands with foreign leaders Vladimir Clinton wears an armoured gauntlet, creating cardboard imitations of missiles is a new top-secret military project, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, and the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism.

Wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, there is a disproportionate number of poor people in prison, and government policy is dictated by Corporate Cult.

A fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, lavish state dinners in International Contract Agency are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, and travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs.

Children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, drunk leprechauns pelt countryside ramblers with gold coins (Amerikan Trumpites has found 3 easter eggs), the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and electricity company executives pray nightly to Zeus and Thor.
