The Holy Grey Matriarchy of Jean Rowe is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Shin Hyuga Shaing with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.654 billion Britannians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sankt Petersburg. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Britannian economy, worth 572 trillion Crowns a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 101,223 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services, the blind lead the blind in social welfare, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jean Rowe's national animal is the Snake, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Britannian Faith.

Jean Rowe is ranked 222,228th in the world and 31st in Warzone Asia for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -8.28 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
