The Grand Duchy of Spheniscidae is a massive, devout nation, renowned for its complete absence of social welfare.
Spheniscidae's national animal is the penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the pengy.
Spheniscidae is ranked 2nd in the region and 10,859th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry.

 Fossil Penguins
Notice that from the Ciconiiformes stem the Pelecaniformes (obviously containing pelicans), and from the Pelecaniformes stem the Procellariformes, which gave rise to Graviidae (loons, etc.) and Spheniscidae.
So, you can see that the auks, which are often mistaken as being closely related to the penguin due to their similar size, shape and ecological niche, aren't closely related to penguins at all.
However, you can see what are closely related to penguins: the Procellariformes from which penguins descend directly, and the Graviidae, which is a daughter clade of the Procellariformes with the Spheniscidae.
