Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Giantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, parental licensing program, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.774 billion Studly Penguinians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort McGuire. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Studly Penguinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,859 trillion Kroner a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,599 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grazing lands are filled with cattle wearing odd-looking anti-pollution devices, the internet has been placed under government control, rap artists are regularly jailed for promoting extremist groups, and the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Studly Penguins's national animal is the Super-Hyped Up Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Studly Penguins is ranked 36th in Texas and 27,337th in the world for Most Politically Free, scoring 76 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
