Los Pinguinos is the largest city on the Castillan province of Penguifornia. The city is known for it's high cultural diversity and it's popular music and filming industry. It was originally started by the Castillan Government as a farming town that would aid the nearby Telenacle Mission, San Michael. Today, Los Pinguinos is famous for it's Latino and Asian culture blend as well as being the film capital of the Antarctic.
The region of what is now Los Pinguinos was once inhabited by indigenous tribes that lived in homes made of brush. In 1754, the Castillans established a small mission in the near area of what is now San Michael in hopes of integrating the newly conquered islanders into Castillan culture. Padre Sierra, a Castillan priest, was content with San Michael's establishment and went north to establish more telenacle missions. Ten years later, the king of Castilla wanted to establish permanent settlements on Penguifornia, thus he ordered several Castillan mainlanders and Caltexicans to settle the area near the San Michael mission. The new settlers established a Pueblo, or village, that established its economy in agriculture. The village stayed small throughout Castillan rule, and even through Caltexican reign when Caltexico claimed the land in 1871. During Caltexican rule, many large ranches emerged around Penguifornia, especially in the areas around the small village of Los Pingüinos. Many of the new ranches that were established were owned by immigrants from the High Penguin Confederacy who had money. In 1881, due to a political dispute and desire for more land, the High Penguin Confederacy conquered Penguifornia. The Platinum Rush of 1900 did not affect Los Pingüinos very much, though several Zhouese who were persecuted and Ninja Archipelagoans who found nothing in Santa Francesca sailed down to Los Pingüinos to start their own neighborhoods. Los Pinguinos slowly grew, but it was not as big as Santa Francesca. In the early 1900's, one of Los Pingüinos's neighborhoods, Hollysnow, saw the rise of small English-speaking film making companies that started making silent films in the beginning. The film business did attract more penguins and puffles as well as the pleasant air. Outside the main city, the ranches went into a decline and were instead dominated by small farms that mainly produced oranges, lemons, pears, and occasionally O-Berries. Such farms were mainly owned by Japalandese and Batavian immigrants. However, the Khanzem War changed the region demographically and economically. The island was luckily ceded to the Good Guys after the fall of the High Penguin Confederacy. However, due to the large Japalandese population in mostly the Los Pingüinos area, all the Japalandese inhabitants on Penguifornia were labeled "Potential Spies", and they were all captured and sent to live in large internment camps in the desert until the war's end. Meanwhile, abandoned Japalandese businesses and farms were sabotaged by other penguins and reclaimed as their own. In fear of a Japalandese attempt to invade Pengufornia in revenge for imprisoning their citizens, the Good Guys established several military bases in southern Penguifornia. Many soldiers stationed there liked the climate, and they moved to the island with their families when the war was over, which added more to the city's population. When the war ended in 1918, several Caltexicans, who were tired of being laborers on farms, rebelled in the city streets of Los Pingüinos and Santa Francesca, and after international pressure, the Grand Ol' Land ceded Pengufornia back to Castilla. The Castillans liberated the Japalandese from their internment camps. Caudillo Franco, the dictator of Castilla, supported Khanzem and Japaland, thus he was sympathetic for the Japalandese when they discovered that their former property had been taken. Franco decided to establish a neighborhood in Los Pingüinos for some Japalandese to live in to make up for their losses. Franco inagurated the neighborhood as "Little Jokio", after its capital. Meanwhile, the film industry began to expand more and their productions became famous across the Antarctic. The 1950's saw the large expansion of Los Pingüinos as more suburbs were established. When the dictatorship of Castilla ended in 1975, Los Pingüinos had become larger than Santa Francesca, and it was still growing. In 1992, several Japalandese terrorists who had a fight with the police sparked a series of riots that rocked the city. The Castillan military was called to crush the extremely violent riots. Today, Los Pingüinos is a prosperous city with an ecomomy based on industry, tourism, and business.
- Hollysnow- Though officially its own city, Hollysnow is part of the Greater Los Pingüinos Area. It is home to several film studios and theaters that host famous award ceremonies.
- Calle Vera- A small pedestrian street that leads to a small plaza, Calle Vera is the remains of the small colonial village. It is characterized by delicious Caltexican restaurants and several street vendors that sell candies and souvenirs from Caltexico. The Plaza is home to the city's oldest fire station, oldest telenacle, and a large veranda in its center. Near the veranda is the statue of the King of Castilla who founded the city.
- Zhoutown- Though not as old as the one in Santa Francesca, Los Pingüinos's Zhoutown is located near Calle Vera and has many Zhouese restaurants and shops. The architecture also reflects its Zhouese heritage.
- Downtown- Downtown is known for its numerous modern skyscapers home to large corperations. It is also where the Los Pingüinos Convention Center and the Clip Stadium is.
- Little Jokio- A neighborhood established in 1919, the area is now modernized and it has several Japalandese restaurants and comic shops. It also is home to a Japalandese kabuki theater.
Los Pinguinos has been known for having poor transportation systems by most standards. Most inhabitants usually drive because of the abundance of cars on the island, and the Los Pinguinos area has MANY freeways that often become congested with traffic at some point during the day. Nevertheless, Los Pinguinos has a small bus system, a few trains, and only couple subway stations. Los Pinguinos International Airport serves the area.
