The Empire of Greygard is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Arcturus Nott with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.55 billion Greygardians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Astonia. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Greygardian economy, worth 659 trillion Drakons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 118,821 Drakons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, and criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greygard's national animal is the Brown Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Greygard is ranked 62,074th in the world and 2,033rd in Lazarus for Most Extreme, scoring 24.21 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
