The Jolly Fresh Fields of Lower French Gregballs is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Anne-Marie Juliette with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.736 billion Lower French Gregballists enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of St Greg Ball Academy in the Fields. The average income tax rate is 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Lower French Gregballsian economy, worth 339 trillion Florins a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 71,607 Florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, ancient antique swords have had their blades replaced with latex boffer LARP replicas, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", and centuries-old legal documents detailing agnatic-cognatic gavelkind succession are being dusted off again. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lower French Gregballs's national animal is the Seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Lower French Gregballs is ranked 27,986th in the world and 37th in Refugia for Most Developed, scoring 76.77 on the Human Development Index.
