The Unified Republic of Greto is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Robert Mannison with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 18.413 billion Gretonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Inspire. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Gretonian economy, worth a remarkable 6,949 trillion Unified Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 377,415 Unified Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,825,237 per year while the poor average 45,273, a ratio of 40.3 to 1.

Colonial subjects have Gretonian culture shoved down their throats, glassy-eyed Gretonian wives lifelessly chant "I love you" on command, the government thinks Gretonians can achieve social cohesion by drinking soda together, and government critics have noticed a lot of new neighbors with expensive surveillance equipment in their garages. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Greto's national animal is the Arctic Hawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Greto is ranked 275th in the world and 10th in Lazarus for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 377,415.89 Standard Monetary Units.
