The Empress Queen Princess Lady of PenguinPies is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Queen Princess Lady of TSP with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.554 billion PenguinPiesians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of PenguinPies City. The average income tax rate is 94.8%.

The PenguinPiesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,432 trillion Oreos a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 92,122 Oreos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Books are so highly regarded in PenguinPies that libraries are often revered as holy shrines, male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, and access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. PenguinPies's national animal is the Hippo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is PIE.

PenguinPies is ranked 12,473rd in the world and 247th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1,432 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
