The Confederacy of Greslon is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 268 million Greslonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Greslonian economy, worth 19.8 trillion Revocs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is 73,985 Revocs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Edutainment video games are taking Greslon's students to the next level, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, Greslonian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader, and criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greslon's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Greslon is ranked 19,165th in the world and 236th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 84.83 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
