The Decadent Opulence of Gray Mouser is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gray Mouser with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 29.229 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 13,103 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 448,321 gold rilks, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,152,588 per year while the poor average 54,522, a ratio of 39.5 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 1,106th in the world and 7th in Eladen for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 11,967.98 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
