The Gigantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 10.387 billion Studly Penguinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Education and Law & Order are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort McGuire. The average income tax rate is 86%, 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.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, politicians have to be granted day-release from prison to speak on bills, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a serious problem. 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 4th in Texas and 951st in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 81 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
