The Gigantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 24.065 billion Studly Penguinians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort McGuire. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Studly Penguinian economy, worth a remarkable 7,380 trillion Kroner a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 306,688 Kroner, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

History textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students, parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, chanting protestors ask "WHAT DO WE WANT?" and reply "MORE OF THE SAME", and the military has gone fission for more funding. Crime is totally unknown. Studly Penguins's national animal is the Super-Hyped Up Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Studly Penguins is ranked 257th in the world and 2nd in Texas for Healthiest Citizens, with 47.81 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
