The Republic of Guy 82 is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its burgeoning cow population. The hard-nosed population of 484 million Guy 82ians 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, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 28.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Guy 82ian economy, worth 16.9 trillion burgers a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 34,898 burgers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
Pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, the government says only criminals harp on about "innocent until proven guilty", roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, and the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Guy 82's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
