The Gigantic Frozen Igloo of Studly Penguins is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hiram Fox with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 22.429 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 97.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Studly Penguinian economy, worth a remarkable 6,666 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 297,223 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sun now sets on the Studly Penguinian Empire, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded, and war vets look after war animals. 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 263rd in the world and 2nd in Texas for Most Developed, scoring 99.16 on the Human Development Index.
