The Constitutional Monarchy of Greymount is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its national health service, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The quiet, industrious population of 14.996 billion Greymountians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 14.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Greymountian economy, worth a remarkable 2,255 trillion Bits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 150,399 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, all new "spies" are fifteen-year-old acne-ridden kids on computers, travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Greymount flights to avoid the pay lavatories, and many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Greymount's national animal is the Hawk, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Greymount is ranked 11,211th in the world and 540th in Osiris for Most Secular, with 90.66 Atheism Rate.
