Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Gigantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 15.811 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 relatively small government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Public Transport are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort McGuire. The average income tax rate is 4.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Studly Penguinian economy, worth a remarkable 3,031 trillion Kroner a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 191,763 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, the fire protection service is wholly government-funded, the government pours millions of Kroner into rehabilitation programs annually, and the new prison system is crowding up at an alarming rate. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Studly Penguins's national animal is the Super-Hyped Up Penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Studly Penguins is ranked 158,735th in the world and 138th in Texas for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -16.43 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
