Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Giantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 12.402 billion Studly Penguinians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The tiny, socially-minded 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 1,785 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 extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,930 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, most people suffer from some form of hearing loss, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, and citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors. 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 21st in Texas and 4,239th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 487 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
