The Nomadic Peoples of New Greasbyland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Beloved Dave with a fair hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 10.477 billion 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.

Badminton was recently banned due to 'unacceptable violence' inherent to the game, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape, and military spending is on the increase. 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 4,863rd in The North Pacific and 115,647th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -6 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
