The United Kingdoms of Grays Harbor is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Paul-Emil II with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 32.696 billion Harberians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aberdeen. The average income tax rate is 93.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Harberian economy, worth a remarkable 7,813 trillion Crowns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 238,969 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Women across the country are tying the knot, anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grays Harbor's national animal is the Baycat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Harberian Catholic.

Grays Harbor is ranked 170,834th in the world and 177th in Texas for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -34.79 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
