The Holy Grey Matriarchy of Jean Rowe is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Shin Hyuga Shaing with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 6.885 billion Britannians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sankt Petersburg. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Britannian economy, worth 698 trillion Crowns a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 101,415 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The blind lead the blind in social welfare, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Jean Rowe's national animal is the Snake, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Britannian Faith.

Jean Rowe is ranked 16,599th in the world and 5th in Warzone Asia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,676.55 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
