The Rogue Nation of Greysoria is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 202 million Greysorians 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 large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 64.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Greysorian economy, worth 11.7 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 57,921 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Frightened witnesses and seriously ill jurors wear the same handcuffs as the defendant, party-lovers often change religions just for the weekend, contestants on Greysoria's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greysoria's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Greysoria is ranked 154,387th in the world and 5,399th in the South Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 9.56 Obesity Rate.
