Located at the bottom of the Earth and home of the South Pole, Antarctica is not an independent nation. The countries of the world have decided that Antarctica belongs to the entire world. Scientists from many nations are there even as we speak, sharing knowledge about geology, meteorology and dozens of other sciences for the good of all Mankind.
Of course, Man can’t do anything without screwing it up. Just as Man learns to work together as once species, boom, we get Global Warming going and we’re totally melting the one place on the goddamn planet where we all get along. So that’s depressing as shit.
But: penguins! Yay, penguins! Soon, they’ll die. Smooth move, Mankind.
