The Empire of Guepo is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed population of 552 million Guepoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 50.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Guepoan economy, worth 35.6 trillion Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 64,555 Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Forestry Department has decided you really can't fight fire with fire, NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests, unpopular politicians are often caught between a rock and a hard place, and discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Guepo's national animal is the Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Guepo is ranked 151,643rd in the world and 6,421st in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 9.18 Obesity Rate.
