The Federal Republic of United Penguin States of Antarctica is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 293 million British Penguinians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Penguin City. The average income tax rate is 39.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming British Penguinian economy, worth 29.5 trillion Penguin Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,651 Penguin Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, and drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Penguin States of Antarctica's national animal is the Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

United Penguin States of Antarctica is ranked 29,113th in the world and 441st in Europe for Most Developed, scoring 75.92 on the Human Development Index.
