The Blue Whale Nation of Guy is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Guy's cerebral cortex with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 14.75 billion blokes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guy's Liver. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The powerhouse blokey economy, worth a remarkable 1,467 trillion Kanqurens a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 99,491 Kanqurens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Guy's cerebral cortex to meetings with foreign heads of state, fashion models are guaranteed to be 100% genuinely as anorexic as they appear on magazine covers, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Guy's national animal is the Briana, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Guy is ranked 165,462nd in the world and 7,524th in the Rejected Realms for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -334.37 on the Hayek Index.
