Guer Aike

Population1.707 billion

FaithThe Order of Dagon


The Dreamlands of Guer Aike is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Cthulhu with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, ritual sacrifices, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.707 billion Guer Aikeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of R'lyeh. The average income tax rate is 90.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Guer Aikean economy, worth 524 trillion Souls a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 307,161 Souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, the government is encouraging violence on television, citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Guer Aike at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list, and mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Shoggoths and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Guer Aike's national animal is the Shoggoth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Order of Dagon.

Guer Aike is ranked 58,139th in the world and 2,932nd in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 2,423.13 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
