The Princessipality of Shy Guyia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Princess Shy Guy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.906 billion Shy Guys enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Guyopolis. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Guyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,459 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 165,000 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, money can't buy love but mercy is entirely negotiable, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shy Guyia's national animal is the Yoshi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Guyian Paganism.

Shy Guyia is ranked 230,005th in the world and 1,143rd in 10000 Islands for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 5,280.01 Standard Monetary Units.
