The Empire of Greygard is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Arcturus Nott with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.014 billion Greygardians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astonia. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Greygardian economy, worth 430 trillion Drakons a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,275 Drakons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ten-year-olds regularly found their own political parties, gossip magazines have pictures of Arcturus Nott sunbathing on the beach with political rivals, tower block residents are each held responsible for four square inches of front lawn, and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Greygard's national animal is the Brown Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Greygard is ranked 53,800th in the world and 2,472nd in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,798.12 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
