The Federation of The Penguin Confederacy is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Alexander Berg with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.601 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 1,530 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 177,989 Fish Scale Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, 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), and Party members are derided as class traitors. 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 9,008th in the world and 792nd in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 39.1 Bank.
