The Indomitable Borderlands of The Grendels is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Warleader Yarooo with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, anti-smoking policies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 37.256 billion Grendels are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hackleburg. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Grendelsian economy, worth an astonishing 34,746 trillion Golden Bonds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 932,654 Golden Bonds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 8,737,479 per year while the poor average 8,368, a ratio of 1,044 to 1.

Just as students finish their homework it's time for school, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, East Lebatuck tests its moon rovers in the barren wasteland of rural The Grendels, and only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Grendels's national animal is the the Dire Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Grendels is ranked 7,321st in the world and 5th in Wysteria for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 9,294.79 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
