The Gigantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.607 billion Studly Penguinians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Education and Law & Order are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort McGuire. The average income tax rate is 90%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

'Abstinence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder' is a common school motto, concert pianists lie about their occupation to avoid ridicule, citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, and citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. Studly Penguins's national animal is the Super-Hyped Up Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Krone.

Studly Penguins is ranked 5th in Texas and 509th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 474 Insults Per Minute (net).
