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 an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 12.055 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, with Defense and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 1,575 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 130,663 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students cut up leftover Kroner during Arts and Crafts, randomly bombing neighboring countries has become the new national sport, eminent domain has been abolished, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 161st in Texas and 139,754th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with -23.4 Net Tourists per hour.
