The People's Republic of A Penguin Tiger is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 18.83 billion Penguin Tigerians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 58.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Penguin Tigerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,518 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 80,646 Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is popularly believed that "cheese every day keeps disaster away", women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft, the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, and the sick and dying are locked in their homes with a red "X" painted on the front door. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Penguin Tiger's national animal is the Tiggerpenguins of Happy Feet, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

A Penguin Tiger is ranked 129,471st in the world and 127th in Texas for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 33,629.47 Standard Monetary Units.
