The Sleeping Cats of Greybrow is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Grey One with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 28.861 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, 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 7,570 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 Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 262,322 nones, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 817,516 per year while the poor average 64,674, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

Carbon-footprint restrictions are making businesses walk, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and high school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers. 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 31,532nd in the world and 152nd in Capitalist Paradise for Most Pro-Market, scoring 65.44 on the Rand Index.
