The Greylands

Population1.94 billion


The Democratic States of The Greylands is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.94 billion Greylandsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 83.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Greylandsian economy, worth 234 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 120,718 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, the government is attempting to revitalize a gutted private sector, and gay couples have to travel to Brancaland to find a church that will actually let them wed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Greylands's national animal is the swan, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Greylands is ranked 80,521st in the world and 3,513th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 1,351.09 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
