The Imperial Bowserist State of Shy Guy Nation is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King-Emperor Bowser Koopa with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.696 billion Bowserites are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bowsers Castle. The average income tax rate is 86.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Bowserist economy, worth a remarkable 2,357 trillion gold coins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 271,125 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper, the family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, and patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Shy Guy Nation" at foreigners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shy Guy Nation's national animal is the Yoshi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Bowserism.

Shy Guy Nation is ranked 8,562nd in the world and 55th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Poor Incomes, with 118,851.75 Standard Monetary Units.
