The Party Crashers of Shy Guyia WA is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Shy Guy with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 10.282 billion shy guys have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shy Guy HQ. The average income tax rate is 83.2%.

The strong Guyian economy, worth 668 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 65,060 Gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Movie references are legally admissible in court, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, city rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of experimental delivery drones, and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shy Guyia WA's national animal is the probably armed Yoshi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a much more minor religion.

Shy Guyia WA is ranked 21,273rd in the world and 8th in Shinka for Highest Economic Output, with 668 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
