The Deserted Holy Red Sand of Weather Guys is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Morgan Barka with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, devout population of 21.234 billion Weather Guys are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Social Policy, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drought. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.6%.

The all-consuming Weathered economy, worth a remarkable 2,299 trillion raindrops a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 108,313 raindrops, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 404,062 per year while the poor average 20,357, a ratio of 19.8 to 1.

The airforce has intensified its bombings of hospitals and schools in Brasilistan, under doctor's orders Morgan Barka is going on a diet and abolishing capital punishment, exploding toys that leak battery acid are back in the shops after the government declared child safety 'over-rated', and unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Drought make great practice for foreign snipers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Weather Guys's national animal is the river, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Big Yam's Dream.

Weather Guys is ranked 90,344th in the world and 53rd in The World Rearranged for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,772.84 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
