The Nomadic Peoples of New Greasbyland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Beloved Dave with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 11.028 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.

The mob and the police have recently had numerous clashes in the back alleys of New Greasbyland's cities due to the government's steadfast anti-casino stance, the government's official position on invasive species is 'who cares?', highschool principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, and foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle. 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 3,881st in The North Pacific and 106,487th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -15 on the Enoch Index.
