The Promised Land of Greener Pastures is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by MrGreen with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.367 billion Greener Pasturesians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pasture City. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Greener Pasturesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,985 trillion roots a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 114,346 roots, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Complaining about Christmas music in October is a ho-ho-horrendous crime, thalassophobia and heliophobia are on the rise, the nation's best artists are considered pretty easy to beat, and schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greener Pastures's national animal is the mouse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Atheism.

Greener Pastures is ranked 2,208th in the world and 5th in Nederland for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 9,352.32 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
