The Queen Protector of PenguinPies is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Princess Lady of TSP with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, complete lack of prisons, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.764 billion PenguinPiesians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

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 Environment, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of PenguinPies City. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient PenguinPiesian economy, worth 687 trillion Oreos a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, 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. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 58,474 Oreos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, panicking criminals no longer flush contraband down the toilet, ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths, and years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 42,208th in the world and 1,290th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 172.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
