The Federation of Greenstead is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Benjamin Freeman with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.829 billion Greensteadians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tabor. The average income tax rate is 79.1%.

The all-consuming Greensteadian economy, worth 178 trillion Unoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 97,553 Unoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, candidates for public office painstakingly research their family trees to ensure their eligibility, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greenstead's national animal is the Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Greenstead is ranked 21,327th in the world and 721st in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 47.7 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
