The Meadow Research Institute of Greybea is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Cambrie Smithson with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.564 billion Greybeans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greybea Meadow Institute. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.2%.

The very strong Greybean economy, worth 99.2 trillion lost souls a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 63,448 lost souls, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Prevalence rates of genitourinary infectious disease are inexplicably on the rise, the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, high school principals regularly send armed truancy patrols to drag problem students to school, and citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Greybea's national animal is the Green Rat Snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Gearguts's Saurian Marthainianism.

Greybea is ranked 238,033rd in the world and 10,454th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 75.99 percentage of bribes refused.
