The Commonwealth of Greylyn is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.581 billion Greylynians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aros. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Greylynian economy, worth 826 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 109,013 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, the latest political memes depict Leader as an overly-choreographed robot, and the government has pinkie-promised never to use its veto power except in an emergency. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greylyn's national animal is the sea turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Secularism.

Greylyn is ranked 108,652nd in the world and 330th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Extreme, scoring 21.03 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
