The Gigantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.716 billion Studly Penguinians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on 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 91%, 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.

Marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, the government pours millions of Kroner into rehabilitation programs annually, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and daisy chain gangs plant flowers and pick up litter. Crime is relatively low, 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 19th in Texas and 9,190th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 14 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
