The Holy Oppressed People of Guer Aike is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Cthulhu the Merciful with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, public floggings, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 804 million 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, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of R'lyh. The average income tax rate is 73.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Guer Aikean economy, worth 147 trillion Souls a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 182,912 Souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The police have been swamped with requests to stay up past bedtime, nobody ever seems to enter or leave the armour-plated flying castle that serves as the seat of government, the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, and foreign leaders who don't applaud Cthulhu the Merciful's speeches are regarded as enemies of Guer Aike. 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 Ghost of Shoggoth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Guer Aike is ranked 88,083rd in the world and 4,681st in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 46.33 on the Rand Index.
