The Diktat of Shy Guy Nation is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by General Guy with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.4 billion Shy Guys 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shy Guy Falls. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Shy Guy economy, worth a remarkable 1,289 trillion roubles a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 201,457 roubles, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Quiet professionalism has returned to the nation's armed forces, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, the government prides itself on being smug and condescending to idiots, and atheistic refugees haven't got a prayer of being granted asylum. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shy Guy Nation's national animal is the ostrich, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Speed.

Shy Guy Nation is ranked 68,172nd in the world and 167th in Wintreath for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,483.87 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
