The Sleeping Cats of Greybrow is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grey One with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, rampant corporate plagiarism, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 25.321 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 6,735 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 266,011 nones, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 815,092 per year while the poor average 67,201, a ratio of 12.1 to 1.

Businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Sleepy Space Agency, and bike rage is all the rage. 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 33,982nd in the world and 72nd in Capitalist Paradise for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 72.97 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
