Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Giantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 12.179 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 minute government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort McGuire. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Studly Penguinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,608 trillion Kroner a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 132,045 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months, prisoners work-share to cut down rising costs of keeping them in jail, and factories grind to a halt every time there is an election. 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 widespread deforestation.

Studly Penguins is ranked 165th in Texas and 146,811th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -706 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
