The Giantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 11.479 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.

The large government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry 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. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Studly Penguinian economy, worth a remarkable 1,888 trillion Kroner a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 164,514 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government subsidizes everything from particle physics to fabric softeners, every citizen must submit to DNA testing to be eliminated from police inquiries, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and government popup ads are springing up like weeds. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded 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.

Studly Penguins is ranked 162nd in Texas and 113,242nd in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -11 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
