The Holy Empire of The Grey Isles is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Bomba Tomba XIV with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, avowedly heterosexual populace, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.55 billion Grey Islesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Wellhholm. The average income tax rate is 44.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Grey Islesian economy, worth 378 trillion Kronors a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,522 Kronors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surveillance cameras are banned, meat is a luxury afforded only to the wealthy, many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations, and heretic deviants are free to practice their deviance outside of The Grey Isles. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Grey Isles's national animal is the The Grey Eagle and its national religion is Lutheranism.

The Grey Isles is ranked 51,728th in the world and 24th in Blackstar for Rudest Citizens, with 69.88 Insults Per Minute.
