OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Gigantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 10.417 billion Studly Penguinians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with 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 87%, 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.

Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and Fort McGuire spends billions upgrading public transport. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a 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 143rd in Texas and 100,877th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -13 on the Hayek Index.
