The Republic of Guy 49 is a massive, safe nation, notable for its burgeoning cow population. The quiet, industrious population of 1.028 billion Guy 49ians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 29.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Guy 49ian economy, worth 38.0 trillion burgers a year, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 36,967 burgers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Rumor has it that Leader has won three lotteries in a row, nobody is forced to join the armed forces, copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper, and elected officials often serve for decades in a single term. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Guy 49's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
