The Democratic Republic of Pengnia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Pengil with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 6.565 billion Pengnians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Penguitia. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Pengnian economy, worth 265 trillion Pengs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,492 Pengs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, there is a heavy social stigma attached to e-cigarettes, and politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pengnia's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Pengnia is ranked 214,847th in the world and 7,651st in The East Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 10,568.57 Standard Monetary Units.
