That Other Guy

Population507 million



The Warzone of That Other Guy is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The quiet, industrious population of 507 million Sentinels are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Francograd. The average income tax rate is 36.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Sentinel economy, worth 26.4 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 52,011 laughters, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bureaucrats close new businesses for not complying with the Penguin Packaging Index, tourists are flocking to the newly-built MeteorLand family resort, priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, and flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys. 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 meme, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

That Other Guy is ranked 99,671st in the world and 2nd in NPO Delenda Est for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 159.94 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
