Guy 57

Population1.17 billion


The Republic of Guy 57 is a massive, safe nation, notable for its daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.17 billion Guy 57ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 31.6%.

The Guy 57ian economy, worth 47.4 trillion burgers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 40,506 burgers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

People who have lived their entire lives in Guy 57 are shocked to discover that they are not citizens, prisoners have been known to host cooking and home décor television shows, kids feel more beat up than ever after a hard day at school, and it's a marvellous night for a moon dance as the sparks on your home start to rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Guy 57's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Guy 57 is ranked 116,993rd in the world and 3rd in Pretzeland for Most Secular, with 17.16 Atheism Rate.
