The Admiral of Greyfield is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.164 billion Greyfieldians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rubinelle. The average income tax rate is 37%, but much higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, followed by Door-to-door Insurance Sales and Pizza Delivery.

Many newspapers agree that the government's ban on cars to combat reckless driving was "a tad excessive", crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations, and prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators. Crime is well under control. Greyfield's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the Monies.

Greyfield is ranked 5th in Kolophon and 74,589th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 49 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
