The United Stratocratic States of Shy Guy Nation is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General Guy with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.718 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shy Guy Falls. The average income tax rate is 47.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Shy Guy economy, worth 427 trillion roubles a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 157,333 roubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

New pests have been imported into Shy Guy Nation, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, billions of roubles are being poured into a space program, and schoolboys trained in chivalry are encouraged to duel other boys for a maiden's hand. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Shy Guy Nation is ranked 9,574th in the world and 31st in Wintreath for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 82,599.83 Standard Monetary Units.
