The Sleeping Cats of Greybrow is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grey One with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 27.213 billion Sleepyheadcats enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Sleepy economy, worth a remarkable 7,252 trillion nones a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 266,503 nones, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 847,659 per year while the poor average 63,789, a ratio of 13.3 to 1.

Fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, and cancer rates amongst the richest in society are inexplicably on the rise. 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 2,588th in the world and 18th in Capitalist Paradise for Smartest Citizens, with 153.67 Quips Per Hour.
