The United Soviet States of Flying-Penguins is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The People of Penguinium with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 1.245 billion flying penguins are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penguinium. The average income tax rate is 80.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Penguin economy, worth 159 trillion fishies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 128,121 fishies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, and devotion to God is only skin-deep. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Flying-Penguins's national animal is the Adélie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

Flying-Penguins is ranked 193,558th in the world and 1,298th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Drug Use, scoring 36.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
