The Sleeping Cats of Greybrow is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Grey One with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 24.582 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 Welfare aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Sleepy economy, worth a remarkable 6,535 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 265,856 nones, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 815,861 per year while the poor average 67,015, a ratio of 12.2 to 1.

Fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, and bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of. 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 139,688th in the world and 148th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Authoritarian, with 0.03 Stalins.
