Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Gigantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 17.32 billion Studly Penguinians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort McGuire. The average income tax rate is 62.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Studly Penguinian economy, worth a remarkable 4,001 trillion Kroner a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 231,017 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, crime is on the rise as online youths compete to vlog the most shocking scenes of violence, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, and shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Studly Penguins's national animal is the Super-Hyped Up Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Studly Penguins is ranked 70,184th in the world and 58th in Texas for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,460.65 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
