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 remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 14.286 billion Studly Penguinians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort McGuire. The average income tax rate is 17.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Studly Penguinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,598 trillion Kroner a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 181,918 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, many aides in Hiram Fox's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, stylish juvenile delinquents are highly overrepresented in fatal motorcycle accidents, and breast milk is being redistributed from each according to their ability to each according to their need. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive. 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 189,261st in the world and 173rd in Texas for Best Weather, with -570 Meters Of Sunlight.
