The Princessipality of Shy Guyia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Princess Shy Guy with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.921 billion Shy Guys are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guyopolis. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Guyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,874 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 157,201 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, the aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Shy Guys, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, and the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu. 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 49,837th in the world and 436th in 10000 Islands for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 68.43 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
