The Nomadic Peoples of New Greasbyland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Beloved Dave with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.356 billion New Greasbylandians 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.

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.

Online tourism reviews of New Greasbyland are suspiciously positive and amazingly similar, voting is compulsory, hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in New Greasbyland's many privately-owned prisons, and space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down. 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 917th in The North Pacific and 29,556th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 125 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
