Guess and Check

Population9.711 billion


The Haughty Idiot of Guess and Check is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working population of 9.711 billion Guess and Checkians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.7%.

The strong Guess and Checkian economy, worth 606 trillion Monies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,441 Monies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 182,416 per year while the poor average 16,878, a ratio of 10.8 to 1.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, kids looking for shark teeth have become ancient history, the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, and forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left. Crime is moderate. Guess and Check's national animal is the Vulture, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Guess and Check is ranked 68,871st in the world and 53rd in The Union of Democratic States for Most Conservative, scoring 70.67 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
