The Princessipality of Shy Guyia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Princess Shy Guy with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.899 billion Shy Guys enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guyopolis. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Guyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,458 trillion Gold Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 165,000 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, money can't buy love but mercy is entirely negotiable, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shy Guyia's national animal is the Yoshi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Guyian Paganism.

Shy Guyia is ranked 121,475th in the world and 436th in 10000 Islands for Largest Black Market, with 283 billion Standard Monetary Units.
