Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Sleeping Cats of Greybrow is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grey One with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, smutty television, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 23.019 billion Sleepyheadcats enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Environment is also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Sleepy economy, worth a remarkable 6,108 trillion nones a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 265,388 nones, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 827,071 per year while the poor average 65,430, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

The nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, Greybrow City spends billions upgrading public transport, and fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Greybrow's national animal is the sleeping cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Greybrow is ranked 177,112th in the world and 265th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Devout, with 3.18 Prayers Per Hour.
