The Decadent Opulence of Gray Mouser is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Gray Mouser with an even hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 30.838 billion Lankmarts enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lankhmar. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Gray Mouserian economy, worth an astonishing 13,900 trillion gold rilks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 450,771 gold rilks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,343,303 per year while the poor average 18,090, a ratio of 184 to 1.

The newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat, Animal Liberationists are regularly jailed, every workday begins with group therapy, and chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Gray Mouser's national animal is the rat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Gray Mouser is ranked 1,139th in the world and 9th in Eladen for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 10,631.15 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
