The Holy Grey Matriarchy of Jean Rowe is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Shin Hyuga Shaing with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.383 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sankt Petersburg. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Britannian economy, worth 430 trillion Crowns a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 98,280 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services, the blind lead the blind in social welfare, curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net, and children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces. 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 15,816th in the world and 5th in Warzone Asia for Most Developed, scoring 86.51 on the Human Development Index.
