That other guy

Population501 million


The Commonwealth of That other guy is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 501 million That other guyians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. The average income tax rate is 37.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The That other guyian economy, worth 25.6 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 51,191 laughters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, immigrants complain that natives keep coming over and taking their jobs, voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, and all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers. 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 Emojis, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

That other guy is ranked 38,351st in the world and 3rd in NPO Delenda Est for Most Income Equality, scoring 56.03 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.

Largest Retail Industry: 16,041st
