The Empire of Guepo is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 571 million Guepoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 51.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Guepoan economy, worth 35.8 trillion Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is 62,782 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts, blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Francs each year, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Guepo's national animal is the Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.
