Guer Aike

Population2.476 billion

FaithThe Order of Dagon


The Accursed Dreamers of Guer Aike is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Cthulhu with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, complete lack of prisons, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.476 billion Guer Aikeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of R'lyeh. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Guer Aikean economy, worth 980 trillion Souls a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 396,076 Souls, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,599,448 per year while the poor average 65,465, a ratio of 24.4 to 1.

Fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, weighted heels are added to military boots to ensure diminutive celebrities meet minimum requirements, and mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Shoggoths and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Guer Aike's national animal is the Shoggoth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Order of Dagon.

Guer Aike is ranked 173,505th in the world and 9,196th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 3.34 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
