The Penguin haven of Penguinmattland is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Matthew with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.892 billion Awesome Dudes 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, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mattdon. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Awesome economy, worth a remarkable 1,660 trillion Doshlings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 186,777 Doshlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, treason is relative, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, and the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Penguinmattland's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Penguinism.

Penguinmattland is ranked 20,765th in the world and 143rd in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.15 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
