The Commonwealth of Greylyn is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.072 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 receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aros. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Greylynian economy, worth 876 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 significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 108,625 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 224,836th in the world and 414th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -5.37 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
