The Greylands

Population923 million


The Democratic States of The Greylands is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 923 million Greylandsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Greylandsian economy, worth 93.6 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,409 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Many marriages go virtually unconsummated, the police turn a blind eye to desecration if it's done in the name of religion or protest, suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, and an increasing number of animal species are named 'Bob'. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Greylands is ranked 65,575th in the world and 1,847th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 166.2948241268 Days.
