The Giantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 11.103 billion Studly Penguinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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 92%, 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.

Voting is voluntary, the number of students attending university has reached a record high, teenagers stay out into the wee hours of the morning "stargazing", and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. 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 167th in Texas and 119,829th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -11 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
