The United Kingdoms of Grays Harbor is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Paul-Emil II with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 32.861 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, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, 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 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Harberian economy, worth a remarkable 7,868 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 239,449 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, the newest shade developed by Grays Harbor's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', and shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes. 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 170,290th in the world and 173rd in Texas for Most Inclusive, scoring 9.28 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
