Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Gigantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with a fair hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 14.768 billion Studly Penguinians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort McGuire. The average income tax rate is 1.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Studly Penguinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,553 trillion Kroner a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 172,902 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, SP-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, and a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Studly Penguins's national animal is the Super-Hyped Up Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Studly Penguins is ranked 14,639th in the world and 27th in Texas for Most Developed, scoring 76.41 on the Human Development Index.
