The United Socialist States of Shy Guy Nation is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General Guy with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 5.821 billion Shy Guys are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shy Guy Falls. The average income tax rate is 35.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shy Guy economy, worth a remarkable 1,131 trillion roubles a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 194,402 roubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, light entertainment isn't dead, refugees from other nations are flocking to Shy Guy Nation's border, and the environment is gorgeous so long as you're looking up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Shy Guy Nation's national animal is the ostrich, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult of Speed.

Shy Guy Nation is ranked 5,785th in the world and 19th in Wintreath for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 15,631.25 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
