The Two Kingdoms of GraySoap is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Emil II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 22.173 billion Grays hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt, liberal government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gorsotten. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Gray economy, worth a remarkable 8,258 trillion Drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 372,446 Drachmas, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Hell is not always other people, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", the law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. GraySoap's national animal is the Eastern Imperial Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

GraySoap is ranked 18,971st in the world and 1st in The Conservative Coalition for Highest Drug Use, scoring 99.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
