The 🙈🙉🙊 of Penguin Dictators is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Alastor Pnoote with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 22.826 billion Penguinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penguinia. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Penguinian economy, worth a remarkable 6,136 trillion Krillems a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 268,850 Krillems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Alastor Pnoote's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Penguinia generates millions of views, the elderly live on a steady diet of canned beans in dreary government housing, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, and the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Penguin Dictators's national animal is the Frilly Elephant Bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Penguism.

Penguin Dictators is ranked 246,507th in the world and 392nd in Wintreath for Most Armed, with 0.09 weapons per person.
