The Borderlands of Greyveldt is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the Conclave with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, ban on automobiles, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.187 billion veldts are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jahenti. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The powerhouse veldtian economy, worth 920 trillion dukats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 128,035 dukats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Formerly internationally exported goods are now given away for free, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, all industry is owned and run by the government, and community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greyveldt's national animal is the pangolin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wheaton's Law.

Greyveldt is ranked 150,305th in the world and 245th in Forest for Highest Drug Use, scoring 55.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
