Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Gigantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, complete lack of prisons, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 14.608 billion Studly Penguinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. 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 2,434 trillion Kroner a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 166,664 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Studly Penguins's national animal is the Super-Hyped Up Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Studly Penguins is ranked 147,244th in the world and 136th in Texas for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -20.74 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
