The Queen's State of Greyback is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy. The hard-working population of 23.044 billion Greybackians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 49.3%.

The Greybackian economy, worth a remarkable 1,069 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 46,421 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Education and welfare spending are on the rise, genetic researchers have been expelled, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greyback's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Greyback is ranked 130,567th in the world and 6th in the Bahamas for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 342.03 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
