The New delegate of Grey County is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Interim Government of Grey County with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, disturbing lack of elderly people, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.797 billion Grey Countians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Healthcare, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laneca. The average income tax rate is 77.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Grey Countian economy, worth 182 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 101,564 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

For the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, the nation has gained millions of new citizens overnight, a burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons, and major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grey County's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Grey County is ranked 220,151st in the world and 68th in Thalassia for Most Primitive, scoring -185.4 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
