In a vast and snowy wasteland on the edge of the known world is a single railway leading to a half-buried station. Inside is a comfortable, fourteen-level deep home with a radio station, Linklibrary, bunkrooms and stocked warehouse, tended to by penguins. A photograph on the wall lists two notable dates just inside the vestibule:
  • 1st Founding: Janurary 2, 2017

  • 2nd Founding: July 16, 2017

Penguia Regional Message Board

Children seem to be getting better at lying these days, weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, and the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low.

Former pharmaceutical company owners have lost their healthy incomes, women find themselves saying "my eyes are up here" more often than they used to, the new Liquor Legitimacy Office is besieged with job applications from people who have experience in "statistical sampling methods", and demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked.

Proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, citizens have voted the song "Jason R Eston Smells Like A Turtledove" as their new national anthem, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, and Jennifer Government is a bestseller.


"A best-seller? Pshaw," said Agnes Day, reading the above headlines on the TV screen at the Visitor's Lounge, in the Sanatorium where she went to visit the old McGregory. "It's so boring I nearly fell asleep after a few pages."

"That must be the reason it sells so well," commented an old lady from a nearby coach. "Less side effects than a sleeping draught."

"What did you think about Providence?" quipped the daughter of the old lady, sitting on a nearby chair.

"Trash Sci-Fi," muttered her mom. "But it's entertaining." She sipped from her glass of Eckie-Ecola.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, lip-readers are often left perplexed by political rallies, and babysitters are a thing of the past.

Apologies for the delay, the nation was collectively participating in a virtual reality simulator set in a science fiction context. Back to our regularly scheduled programming.

Amerikan Trumpites is ranked 19,865th in the world and 2nd in Penguia for Most Influential, scoring 1,946 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.

Time for me to move. It's been a pleasure. All the best.

The government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, war vets look after war animals, and the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources.

Vladimir Clinton has declared a weed sticking through a crack in the sidewalk to be the nation's newest green space, wearing a daisy chain is a fast-track ticket to unemployment, laughter while watching foreign diplomats disrobe tends to make diplomatic talks counterproductive, and education is transforming people into first-rate snobs.

Prisoners fit in their parole hearings around their spa treatments, it is broadly agreed that tramp stamps are criminally undesirable, flatulent people are left to die of cancer at the end of hospital waiting lists, and toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam".

City rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of high velocity delivery drones, to 'cut off family ties' is no longer just a phrase, street crime is on the rise as police officers spend most of their time in prisons, and motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, the sidewalk is used as an overtaking lane by city drivers, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and first-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one.
