OverviewDispatchesPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Giantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 11.265 billion Studly Penguinians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with 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 92%, 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.

The government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, polygamy is legal, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 3rd in Texas and 813th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring 96 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
