That Other Guy

Population524 million



The Warzone of That Other Guy is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and zero percent divorce rate. The quiet, industrious population of 524 million Sentinels are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Francograd. The average income tax rate is 36.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Sentinel economy, worth 27.3 trillion laughters a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,011 laughters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bureaucrats close new businesses for not complying with the Penguin Packaging Index, tourists are flocking to the newly-built MeteorLand family resort, priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, and flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. That Other Guy's national animal is the meme, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

That Other Guy is ranked 133,939th in the world and 1st in NPO Delenda Est for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 43.43 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
