Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Gigantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 14.408 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 tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort McGuire. The average income tax rate is 1.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Studly Penguinian economy, worth a remarkable 2,427 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 168,488 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, and Studly Penguins successfully hosted the Texas Olympics. 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 heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Studly Penguins is ranked 181,663rd in the world and 168th in Texas for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -56.36 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
