The Gigantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 23.421 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 7,092 trillion Kroner a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 302,811 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers can choose whether they prefer offices that smell of pungent body odor or whale vomit, military parades quietly tiptoe their way through the streets, the standard police uniform now comes with several colours of belt, and road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans. 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 208,209th in the world and 198th in Texas for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -58.19 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
