The Krytocratic Republic of the United States of Antarctica, the United States of Antarctica, or, USA for short, is the biggest, most populated and most powerful penguin-run country based in Antarctica. The capital is South Pole City, which won by 1 vote in the 2000 Capital Elections. It was formed by the reorganization of states after the massive downfall of the long-lived Colonial Antarctica and the monarchy of Olde Antarctica.
The USA has several states, which are Eastshield, Trans-Antarctica, Antarctic Peninsula, Sub-Antarctic, Pengolia, The Happyface State (in favour of Happyface), Fruit Island, and Weddell. Neighbouring rich countries include Freezeland, MAI, Southern Ocean City, Clearwater Island, Hailvale, Warmslates, Dorkugal, Auzua Mostafique, Polaris and Emperorlands.
Perhaps the most known landmark in the USA is Club Penguin, a port town situated in the Sub-Antarctic. Threats are mainly from The Darktonian Realm, or Darktan. Link and Newman are also major villains too. The most annoying is Mabel. The Antics Brothers, Explorer and Fred, are quite famous around the country. Few countries have no relations, one of which would be the United Penguins Republic, a self-governed area in CP.

The USA was founded on October 22, 2000 to reorganize the scattered penguin colonies across Antarctica. It rapidly grew as tons of penguins flocked to the cities. To solve the overload of penguins, the entire country went online, using different servers to spread the citizens evenly. Club Penguin was founded as a small port city in the South Shetland Islands. A group of penguins known as "the Club" provided hospitality to the sailors, giving the island its name. When the country's states began trading with themselves, Club Penguin was viewed as a ideal place for a port city, seeing as it is near several Sub-Antarctic Islands and also the Antarctic Peninsula. It is now the second largest city in the USA. A bunch of high-tech flying gastropods arrived in 1997 and founded Snellville, which joined the country soon after its formation. In 2006 the city of Ternville was placed in the sky for the arctic terns. As a gift, the terns sent propeller hats to Club Penguin. Soon, more states were added, such as the state of Pengolia, a land full of grumpy penguins known as The Khanz and The Happyface State which provides supplies and penguins for the protection of the Free Republics. Weddell got separated from the Sub-Antarctic.

Special Administrative Districts
- Polaris SAD: An autonomous region, concentrated around Polaris City and the western coasts of Eastshield and the HF.
Inhabited by happy penguins, this is the second largest city in the country. It has a major port and a silver mine. The island holds the record for most servers installed in an urban location.
The Third largest city in the USA, and is well nicknamed the "Snowy City" since it snows there often (during winter months) in snow flurries. It is also famous for it's Ligurian Gangsters, Jazz, it's pie shaped pizza, and lively streets.
It's a metropolis, inhabited by 95% Emperor Penguins.
High up in the clouds, where all the arctic terns live.
This domed city is the home of the Emoticons.
This hospitable city is inhabited by RocketSnails.

Lands on the outskirts of the USA that usually house ghosts, monsters, and hackers. List of uncharted states:
- 90-150 (mainland)
- 90-150 Island
- Ban Island
- THE SKIP
- Skua Strait
- Diamond Falls
- Hackzon Valley
- Orca Ocean
- New Forest
- The Darktonian Realm
- 230-190 Point
- Meteorite Falls
- Moderator Island
- Mystery Island
Imperial Forces have raided, destroyed, and caused havoc in the USA. The local defense groups are no match for them. However, they can only wreck smaller towns as the larger districts have more power, so they aren't much of a threat.
Probaly the biggest enemy there is, Darktan can take a state, compared to the Imperial Forces. They're being held off at the Darktonian Realm at the site of the Great Darktonian Pie War, but this leaves the USA undefended, and there's a chance that the Imperial Forces could attack.
Another small force. It's related to the Imperial Forces, as it can only reck havoc on small towns and militas. However, they can invade an unprepared nation easily.
- Imperial Empire of Snowzerland - Snowzerland and it's fellow German States are a growing force that wish to destroy the USA one day. They already have created Five nasty wars against it in only one year, and they're not quite ready to give up yet. The Snoss even attempted to destroy the USA with nuclear weaponry. In return, the USA almost nuked them with a Deletion nuke. Ever since, the Snoss plan for revenge and will want to strike against the USA again when they don't expect it.
- North Joseon - North Joseon and the USA have always had a rough relationship ever since North Joseon became independent. They have extremely contrasting political views, and North Joseon constantly threatens the USA with nuclear war.
The USA, as well as territories, has a few "free republics". These republics are under the USA's military and economic protection, but do have the right to freely control themselves and are separate and immune from the rest of the main country and its laws, state or federal. To make sure the republics didn't exploit this privilege, their ambassadors signed the Treaty of Dorkugal, stating that the republics would cooperate, help out, and side with the USA. In turn, the USA would continue to protect and help the republics as well. Think of it as a partnership between countries.
The Republic of Freezeland is a maritime in the west. It used to be uncharted territory, but all "hostiles" were expunged and the land was settled and now prospers. Freezeland has the strongest navy in the USA, and provides protection to the west, and when needed, the whole continent. It was claimed to be protected by the USA, but that's a joke, as it's fully independent/controlled freely.
Italics - Freezeland has gained significant status within the Antarctic community that it is considered a fully-independent republic and partially not shelved under the USA as a "free republic".
The Republic of Acadia is an island city-state that borders the Antarctic Peninsula to the east and north and Sub-Antarctica to the south and west. It used to be a colony of Puffle'and. It has one of the best economies and one of the highest GDP Nominal Per Capita in Antarctica. The Acadian Dollar (ACD) is one of the most valued and traded currencies in Antarctica. It also has one of the best armed forces.
The Kingdom of Furshire is a couple of islands close to the east shield of the Antarctica, ex-colony of Puffle'and, it has one of the strongest economies and is home of the largest diamond mine of the Antarctica.
An eerie land under Semi-Machine Rule, administered entirely by supercomputers. The Geek Empire is infamous for its Hacker's Underworld, the largest hacking area anywhere. They are desperate for tourists. It is not fully accepted by the USA yet, because, quote: "we can't go see those stinking hackers!"
One of the strangest countries in the known world, Waffleland is inhabited almost entirely by Str00dels and other weird penguins. It's culture is very strange.
A cluster of independent nations in the Ninja Archipelago, home to the rich and historic European cultures. It's historic cities, ancient countryside, and beautiful beaches (on some islands) are a popular tourist destination for Antarcticans.
A beautiful and tropical island in the whole of Antarctica. Its strange sand-filled beaches makes it a popular destination for holidaymakers. Alex12345a, citizen from MAI, signed the treaty in the place of Eve Lendfell, who was sick at the time.
The volcanic islands of Warmslates lie north of the Sub-Antarctic and the Weddell Sea, just south of Club Penguin. Their governor recently signed the Treaty of Dorkugal, holding over a bubbling hot spring as he did so, which is a sign of integrity and honesty in the Warmslate culture. They are currently the most popular holiday resort in whole USA.
A small island off the coast of the Happyface State. It was founded by Barkjon in 2008 and is the home base of the Club Penguin Exploration Group.
A strange country ruled by workers, East Pengolia secedded from West Pengolia and later signed the treaty. They emphasise that they are independent from the USA, much like Freezeland.
An archipelago country around 11 times larger than Club Penguin. It is located a fair distance from Club Penguin. It has a tropical climate and the main island is self-sufficient.
An island covered in volcanoes. In the northeast there is a small jungle and a city. Manbu3 is the current president. Before EDFan12345 and him stopped being enemies, he was Lavaheart's biggest threat. Lavaheart does not play much of a role on society as most of the USA.
Former Free Republics
The island joined the USA because of the unstable, and getting even worse economical situation. It was led by IrishProvo1916, Triskelle's brother (and rival). However, the country was split into CRWM and DREM, and neither of them joined the USA.
The government was displeased with its status as a "free republic", being placed under the USA's realm when it was a fully independent country. Silently broke away in 2011, but diplomatic relations still continue with it's army still placed in the USA.
The USA's geographical landmarks are varied and very interesting. Trans-Antarctica contains some of the roughest terrain in the continent, such as the Trans-Antarctican Mountain Range and Hackzon Valley. Sunshine Fjord is also a large tourist spot in the state. Eastshield's Howler Canyon, which is a dried out river canal that connects it and West Pengolia, is home to some of the fastest winds in the country thanks to the strong Pengolian katabatic winds, bested only by the AiringJet Current. Club Penguin Island in the Sub-Antarctic contains an extinct volcano, the remains of which is located inside Diamond Falls. The Hochstadt Canyon, located between the border of the Regiao Lisboaguesa and the Antarctic Peninsula, is a very deep canyon that also gets many tourists. It has one of the most unique wildlife habitats and climate in the USA. In the direction of Club Penguin, there is Megg Street, where Megg was born. In the Happyface State, the now-famous Puffledor street is there, where the famed (not a) reporter lives.

The USA is a major exporter of electronics, machines, and other various products. The states of Trans-Antarctica, Eastshield, and Sub-Antarctica feed the SABER with cargo to be delivered to other countries around the Antarctic.
The currency of the USA is the Fish, commonly represented by gold-plated metal coins with the image of a fish pressed into them. The USA's previous currency, the Pebble, was decommissioned due to hyperinflation (today it would be worth around one-twentieth of a fish). Several other countries have fixed their currencies' values to the fish because of its widespread use.
The Fish is equivalent to ¾ of a real US Dollar, which is 75¢.
- Main article: Constitution of the United States of Antarctica
- Population: Over 2 billion, at last count. It's growing so fast, the Antarctic Bureau of Population is having trouble keeping track of it, even with their high-tech supercomputers from Dorkugal.
The government is fashioned in a similar style to the United States of America, but only in that it has three branches. The seperation of powers is very blurry here. The legislature is maintained by the South Pole Council. The exectutive branch is controlled by the President, Billybob, and the Executive Cabinet.
The Government was created in 2000 after the fall of Colonial Antarctica in the Epic Revolution.
The Constitution of the United States of Antarctica is the supreme law in the government, establishing what everyone can and can not do.
Interestingly, the legislature (South Pole Council) and judiciary (GourdZoid Council) are quite childish, frequently argue with each other, and have to be "babysitted" by the executive branch. The two also play Paintball every weekend.
Even more strange is that the Constitution actually banned a sole supreme court... -so how did they get into power?
The USA is praised for having "the most stable government since the High Penguin Confederacy".

Mostly run by penguins, puffles, and arctic terns. Crabs are quite minor creatures found on the shores of the Sub-Antarctic. ]Snails can be found in Snellville. A small mountain village in Trans-Antarctica was discovered to be the native home of talking pumpkins. The city of EmotiVille was raised out of the ground in early 2008 and is inhabitated by Emoticons.
Like any central location in any universe, the USA is commonly attacked by villains. Although it's usually individual powers, there are times when mobs of a certain kind will attack. In this case, Antarctica's Protectors quickly defeat them, but the Club Penguin Police Department or other local police can handle them if need be using Square Islands-issued weaponry. There is also state police departments, and sheriff departments to help stop crime.
- Skua groups, bent on eating little chicks.
- Leopard Seal groups, will eat any penguin!
- Orca groups, swim in the sea, same motives as seals.
- Hordes of Raptor Bots that occur a few times every year.
- Hackers, they're just plain BAD.
There are lots of ways to get around Antarctica. While the most popular form, teleportation, is quick and easy, it doesn't go very far if you have the standard medium-grade one. Since 65% of penguins traveling daily in the USA are seeking a destination farther away than 5 miles, most penguins use a different form of transportation. The list below shows what form of transportation most penguins traveling in the USA will probably pick, depending on how far they're traveling.

Penguins in the USA have a somewhat idiosyncratic (though luxurious) lifestyle. Here are some of the everyday aspects of the country.
See also: List of Antarctica Channels
Due to the USA's superior cyber-technology (mostly developed in Dorkugal), most citizens have, along with the major accessories in the real USA, medium-grade teleporters (these allow you to teleport anywhere within a 5 mile radius), server switchers (these allow you to go to a different server if your city is wired, and most of them are), holographic newspapers (these are bought once and can then, using the Internet, be updated to show recent news), and similar things. Most teleportal, Internet, and TV services are provided by large conglomerates, most operating in Dorkugal.
As television is a huge topic, please refer to List of Antarctica Channels for more information.
List of service providers and networks:
- Internet-related services
- Penguin Web Browser (PWB)
- Internet Explorer 767
- Mozilla FireLink
- H&H Pahoo
- Emperorlands Internet
- Holographic Newspapers
- SonicGreen (provider of the Antarctic Teleporter Network)
- Teleporters' Inc. (produces and sells teleporters)
- Emperorlands Teleporters (makes and sells teleporters for Emperorlands)
For many years, it was rumored that government officials were hiding something about teleportation. Many factories producing teleporters were closed down by government officials, and several recalls concerning high-grade teleporters were made. Taxes on teleporters and teleportation services were raised up to 47% more than they had been before. Also, it was rather suspicious to give the civilians teleporters that worked only up to 5 miles when teleporting technology allowed penguins to teleport at least 20 times as much as that. The public began gossiping about the suspicious actions of the government concerning teleporters. At last, in the winter of 2008, a scientific journal with a large reputation published a story about the surprising facts the government had recently released. The article stated that the government had recently sent them information about Caxalin, a biohazard that can permanently harm the nervous system of living creatures, thus paralyzing them. It also is quite acidic (pH of -13) and can burn almost anything. Furthermore, Caxalin can only produced during the process of Coagulative Rapid Universe Distortion (C.R.U.D. for short), which is a vital part of teleportation. This was why the government was attempting to limit teleportation around the continent. As of now, new biohazard-free teleportation systems (like the TeleNet) are being invented. The number of teleportations made daily are slowly but steadily lowering, and some teleporters have safety features on them that prevent you from teleporting more than 5 times a day.
About 41% of penguins in the USA watch a sports game daily. The national sport is ice hockey, and since the USA's climate includes below freezing temperatures, there's bound to be at least 50 hockey games playing simultaneously in the country at one time. Ice Hockey has many professional leagues. The top is Major Hockey League. The two other professional leagues is Ice Hockey League 1 or the IHL 1 and the Ice Hockey League 2, or the IHL 2. The semi professional Ice Hockey leagues include the Ice Hockey League 3. Below it is the regional semi-pro leagues (League Weddell, League Eastshield, League Trans-Antarctica, League Subantarctic and NNE Conferance). County and local teams are always amaeter and compete in their own leagues. Notable stadiums include Club Penguin Stadium (shared by Blue Iceterns, Red Phoenixes, Orenje Firepuffles and Purple Warriors), Aquarius Hockey Place (owned by Aquarius IHC) and Ulansnowtarr State Ice Rink, otherwise known as the Pengolia PWNSOME Rink. Each state has a national team; Trans-Antarctica's stadium is the Pengu Town Oval, Weddell's is Shield Island's Hockey Hall, sub antarctica uses the Club Penguin Stadium, New North Etana uses the Wentley State Stadium and Eastshield uses the Eastshield Empire (shared with Antarctica Magna). Every year each state meets to play the Ice Hockey Conferance. The national teams also compete in the Ice Hockey World Cup.
Gridirion football is also popular, with all variants (Canadian, American and Arena) being popular but a variants popularity depends on the area. American football is popular mostly in Eastshield and the subantarctic state. Canadian football is popular in Weddell, New North Etana and the Antarctica Peninsula. In Trans-Antarctica, the count is so close (54% prefer Canadian football to American) that it depends on which part of Trans-Antarctica. Arena football is popular but it isn't the most popular form of gridirion in any state. For Canadian football, the professional leagues include Football Conferance Premier' (FCP)', the Football Conference Championship (FCC) and the Football Conference League (FCL). There is one semi pro league, the Football Conference League Qualification (FCLQ). Amaetuer leagues are regional. State ones decide who qualifies for the FCLQ. I'll add more!
Soccer (Called football in the Free Republics), Snowball fights, Sledding, Surfing, Baseball, American Football (An alternative is called "Rugby" in the Free Republics), Basketball, and Dodgeball are also played.
Another popular sport in the neighboring country of Dorkugal is the Uber Bowl. This tournament is the Antarctic equivalent of the Super Bowl. However, since it's a Dorkugese contest, most penguins watch the commercials in between. Like the Super Bowl, the Uber Bowl is world-famous because it airs the greatest commercials of the year.
At last count, 78% of penguins tuned in to the last Uber Bowl.
Surfing is very popular on the coasts of every state. The surfing capital of the USA is Mojave,Trans-Antarctica. That is where penguins hold the yearly Surfing Contest. Penguins from all around the USA come to compete. The winner gets a beautiful gold trophy.
Football, also known as soccer, is also one of the top sports in the USA. They are home to the Antarctic Premier League, which houses some of the best teams in Antarctica. The USA has also participated in the UGFA World Cup, where they have reached the quarterfinals in 2010. They have grown soccer stars such as Preston Greaves, Dylan Barius, and Arnold Kirwan.
The cuisine of the USA varies from state to state, whith each state having its own style of food.
Eastshield's cuisine is more diverse than any other state's cuisine is, due to the fact that it comprises of over half the Antarctic continent. In the inland portions of the state, the richest areas with some of the biggest cities in the state, many penguins are able to afford buying meals at restaurants instead of cooking at home, growing their own food, and/or buying food/ingredients from stores. The same, however, cannot be said for the coastal areas of Eastshield, where fish are plentiful. Here, families tend to grow their own food or use the local resources, and occasionally buy food/ingredients from stores as well. The areas between the deep inlands and coastal areas of Eastshield are a mix between the two.
ADD MORE, SOMEONE!
Trans-Antarcticans usually grow their own food, and due to the lack of fish around the coast, Trans-Antarctica's cuisine is very vegetarian. Fresh O' Berries are used in Trans-Antarctican cooking in many ways, and many of them thrive in the mountain ranges in the southeast. Fried fish is very popular as a flipper food here, as is grits.
ADD MORE, SOMEONE!
Peninsulan cuisine is heavily based on seafood, due to the large amounts of fish and other edible marine creatures located around the state's coast. Oysters, clam, krill, shrimp, fish, and so much more is caught daily around the coastal areas of this state, and, due to the trading economy that the Antarctic Peninsula has, about 45% of it is exported to other states. Only the Sub-Antarctic Islands have better fish.

Main Article:Cuisine of Freezeland
Cuisine in Freezeland is based on two foods, Fish, and Vegtables. Freezeland has exclusive trade lines with the Victoria Territories, so they have many unique, regional, foods. Such foods include Cabbage, Artemis Carrots, Water Chesnuts, Ginger, Potatoes, Radishes, and New Zealand Yams. Freezelandian penguins love to eat socially with friends or family, but will never turn you down for a glass of Cream Soda. Freezeland customs state that if someone gives you something to eat or drink, you must give food or drink to them. Since Freezeland is a marritime, a normal Freezelandian diet includes Fish, Seaweed, Oysters, Squid, Sea Grapes, and Sea Lettuce. O'Berrys are an expensive delicacy, and common Yule gifts. Freezeland does not house many fast food resteraunts, more fine dining and rotaisserie fish resteraunts, such as Frys Chalet.
The state is often recognised as a "Green" state, because it is full of beautiful green forest, not seen in other states. Crops are grown there, so lots of different fruit an vegetables are used it their cuisine. The big delicacy in Wentley is the Gigante Salad, which consits of the most tasty mix of vegetables ever seen! It might be similar to the Freezeland cuisine, but New North etanian population usually eats green food, which makes them very healthy. Idoreconise signed a new rule - No Fast Food i NNE! 98% of the population agrees with him. When visiting NNE, try also Wentley Algae - tastes yummy!

Education is considered an important aspect in Antarctica, since most of high paying jobs like a doctor, engineer, or lawyer require lots of knowledge. Because of that, every town or city has at least one K-12 school and one college. Yes, Kindergartners and twelfth graders under the same roof. The government provides public and other public schools each state. Many other penguins use the private schools in many cities in all states. It was not one of the best idea since it was implemented in Colonial Antarctica. The main K-12 schools in each state are the following:
- Eastshield - Antarctic Academy, South Pole City
- Sub-Antarctic - Club Penguin Academy, Club Penguin
- Trans-Antarctica - Pengu Academy, Pengu Town
- West Pengolia - Institute of PWNage, Ulaansnowtar
- The Happyface State - Penguin Academy, Happy City
- Antarctic Peninsula - Saint Louis Academy, Shiverpool
- Weddell - Iceberg Institute, Shield City
- Fruitland - Fruitville Academy, Fruitville
- New North Etana - General School of NNE State, New West City
The most notable universities of each state are:
- Eastshield - University of South Pole City.
- Sub-Antarctic - Beacon University, Club Penguin
- Trans-Antarctica - University of Pengu Town, Pengu Town
- West Pengolia - University of Ulaansnowtar, Ulaansnowtar
- The Happyface State - Penguin University, Happy city
- Antarctic Peninsula - University of South Shiverpool
- Weddell - Tundra University, Shield City
- Fruitland - University of Fruitville, Fruitville
- New North Etana - Northern Etanian University, New West City
Compared to that of other countries, USA has the 6th best education facilities, behind Geek Empire, Dorkugal, Lichenblossom, Chinstrap, and MAI (they are SO obssessed with education, that it's compulsory into college).
Flags, Motto, and Anthem
(Main article: Flag of the USA)
The USA has two flags, unlike a normal country. Each flag was submitted into the legislature and the judiciary at the same time, and neither branch could turn either flag down. So, the country ended up with two flags. This has actually helped a lot, because if you keep two different flags for a flag parade and you lose one, you can always go ahead and fly the other.
The country's official and full motto is "Boredom is for Wimps and Booyah Forever!" Most penguins shorten this to "Booyah Forever!", though.
The country's national anthem is CURRENTLY PENDING A RE-SELECTION BALLOT. Like most anthems, all must sing along when playing (that means you, Mabel). However, free republics can use their own anthem as a symbol of pride. A free republic that does this is Freezeland, and its anthem is The Snowbourne Rangers.
