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 notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 22.654 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, with Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Sleepy economy, worth a remarkable 6,013 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 265,432 nones, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 827,210 per year while the poor average 65,441, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

The government has returned all business to private ownership, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and Greybrow City spends billions upgrading public transport. 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 2,537th in the world and 37th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 37,192.05 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
