The Greylands

Population1.46 billion


The Democratic States of The Greylands is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.46 billion Greylandsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Greylandsian economy, worth 176 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 120,771 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, and attendance of fathers at PTA meetings is at an all-time high. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Greylands's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Greylands is ranked 11,298th in the world and 626th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.32 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
