The Federation of The Penguin Confederacy is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Alexander Berg with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 7.681 billion Penguins are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Glacial Capital. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Penguin Confederacy economy, worth a remarkable 1,403 trillion Fish Scale Coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 182,717 Fish Scale Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It turns out that money can buy you happiness, libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Penguin Confederacy's national animal is the Orange Trout, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Penguin Confederacy is ranked 14,660th in the world and 767th in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 79.1 Atheism Rate.
