The Princessipality of Shy Guyia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Princess Shy Guy with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.895 billion Shy Guys enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

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 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Guyian economy, worth a remarkable 2,972 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 166,093 Gold Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, celebrities sit helplessly as they are labeled "pompous womples" by Princess Shy Guy, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Guyian satellites can detect it, and builders across Shy Guyia are blocked up with orders for new public loos. 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 236,090th in the world and 1,338th in 10000 Islands for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 343.67 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
