Penguio Island was first discovered by the USA explorer Adventurer 878 in 1894, who was an relative of the largely famous Explorer 767. A settlement was started by Adventurer who claimed the island for the United States of Antarctica. The island had never been found by Puffish Antarctica, maainly because of how far North of Mainland it was. When Explorer heard how the large the island was, a couple of days later, Penguio was released as a free nation under the claimant control of Tom Saworton due to how much land the USA would have to cover. Adventurer didn't mind as he was a viking himself and from what he heard it would be a viking country. Viking Penguio was then officialy set up and several cities were scattered across the lands. These cities were known as the Capitol 4 consisting of 4 cities all over 1 million population of penguins, Pengslo, Icebergen, Pengver and Puffheim. Many immigrants from the large Viking Empire heard about the new nation and immigrated to the newly founded viking country. The industry began to boom in Pengslo and Icebergen, and Pengslo was then announced the official capital of Penguio. The language was made by a linguistic expert from the Viking Empire who was highly rewarded with the status of a Lord and he also immigrated to the nation. The basic setup of the nation was setup, but a basic nation wasn't enough for Tom Saworton. Saworton demanded a higher construction of the cities and also started an invasion of 2 nearby non-protected countries, Sleetden and Pengmark. The two colonies were invaded and a new era was about to start for the averagely populated nation. The nation began to thrive with it's imperialism and it's colonies (which were already developed) started a large economy for the island. Immigration rates were high and Penguio had improved it's army to the likes of around ranked 17th in the world. Penguio had turned from a what most countries called it a "non-state" to a thriving country in just 8 years. Saworton was pleased about his accomplishment and now could relax in his large palace, and according to the Department of Time, will have control over his country until The Spitfire.
Penguio currently owns a imperial monarchy over a moderate portion of the Antarctic Archipelago. It's language and culture has spread across all of it's colonies. It allies with other imperial empires including Castilla, Lisboagal and the largest of all, Snowzerland.
The economy of Penguio is a very large economy, built up lots when it was under the occupation of the United States of Antarctica. The reason it was built up is the USA wanted a very technical and economical country to be built to defend it from incoming weapons and missiles from Snoss and Castillan hispanify and germanify takeovers. The official currency of Penguio is the Penguioan Dollar, one of the top currencies in Antarctica. Before using the Penguioan dollar, Penguio's official currency was the Fish as Penguio was under antarctican control.
The largest industries of Penguio are the Banking, Investment and Television industries of the nation, mainly because lots of them are invested in by the Penguioan government, being partly capitalist when not imperial. The penguioan company is mainly incharge of one of Antarctica's largest television shows which is a talk show, Why Penguin. The show is hosted by top antarcticans like Explorer 767 who is the official representative of the Sub-Antarctic.
The banking industry however is quite large also as multiple penguins with Penguioan birth have made millionaire making banks, which are all at extremely low intrest rates largely annoying the penguioan public. Because of this, many young penguioan businessman attempt to make better banks, to improve the income of the poor penguioan citizens.
The two official languages of Penguio are Penguioan and Penguioan English. The more commonly used language is Penguioan which is in the category of nordic languages. No other language is spoken by the natives of Penguio because of the law so the country is protected from trade with the countries's enemies by the Pengslo City mafia. Some mafias including the Port Blue and Pengslo mafia break the law by speaking traditional Viking.
