Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Sleeping Cats of Greybrow is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grey One with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 23.588 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 aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The all-consuming Sleepy economy, worth a remarkable 6,270 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 265,827 nones, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 828,440 per year while the poor average 65,538, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

Same-sex marriages are increasingly common, Greybrow City spends billions upgrading public transport, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, and people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more. 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 149,347th in the world and 243rd in Capitalist Paradise for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -14.83 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
