The Gigantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed population of 10.925 billion Studly Penguinians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 88%, 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.

Punitive tariffs protect local industry, military service is compulsory, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, and traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways. 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 145th in Texas and 112,138th in the world for Best Weather, with -1,051 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
