The Allied States of Pinguioris is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Jacob John Henry Lamais with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.752 billion Pinguiorisians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Appaloosa City. The average income tax rate is 5.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Pinguiorisian economy, worth 514 trillion Sapphire Horseshoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 186,886 Sapphire Horseshoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Government opponents tend to have their patents rejected immediately, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records, and streaming video is considered to be a myth by most citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Pinguioris's national animal is the Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity and Equestrianism.

Pinguioris is ranked 8,366th in the world and 482nd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 88.21 on the Human Development Index.
