OverviewFactbookDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The United Kingdom of Penguania and Antarctica is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Elijah II with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.878 billion Penguanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Icemounton. The average income tax rate is 98.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Penguanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,812 trillion Polar Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 189,039 Polar Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, the Fashion Channel can only be viewed on widescreen TVs, and vital intelligence-gathering activities are often put on hold for Call of Honor tournaments. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Penguania and Antarctica's national animal is the Emperor Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Polarism.

Penguania and Antarctica is ranked 13,300th in the world and 12th in The Confederacy of Free Nations for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.03 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
