The Federation of Greenstead is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Benjamin Freeman with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate population of 2.173 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 79.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Greensteadian economy, worth 218 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 an impressive 100,327 Unoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Hotels often double as quarantine zones, anti-government web sites are springing up, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany President Benjamin Freeman to meetings with foreign heads of state, and lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers. 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 69,028th in the world and 4,186th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 65.33 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
