The Holy Empire of The Grey Isles is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Bomba Tomba XIV with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 6.047 billion Grey Islesians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Wellhholm. The average income tax rate is 50.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Grey Islesian economy, worth 674 trillion Kronors a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,493 Kronors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Atheists on vacation find Lutheranism's scriptures make useful doorstops, marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, 1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Grey Isles's national animal is the The Grey Eagle and its national religion is Lutheranism.

The Grey Isles is ranked 42,333rd in the world and 11th in Blackstar for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 3,981.55 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
