The Nomadic Peoples of New Greasbyland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Beloved Dave with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.062 billion New Greasbylandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The City of The Beloved Dave. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Referenda are held for every conceivable government action, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The The City of The Beloved Dave Times is sold out, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, and muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Greasbyland's national animal is the two legged cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the chocolate penny.

New Greasbyland is ranked 105th in The North Pacific and 3,239th in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 74 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
