The Federation of The Penguin Confederacy is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Alexander Berg with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.652 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%.

The frighteningly efficient Penguin Confederacy economy, worth a remarkable 1,540 trillion Fish Scale Coins a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 178,077 Fish Scale Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Popular political cartoonists are thrown in jail for inciting dissent, the nation has a strict 'no marauding undead' law (The Penguin Confederacy has found 1 easter egg), Party members are derided as class traitors, and gift baskets often contain working nukes. 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 32,470th in the world and 1,466th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,674.47 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
