The Gigantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 10.579 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, liberal 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.

Cremation is compulsory for the deceased, the nation leads Texas in per capita stalking, democratic debates have been removed from the government, and the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. 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 30th in Texas and 13,318th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 23 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
