The Indomitable Borderlands of The Grendels is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Warleader Yarooo with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 26.14 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.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Defence, Commerce, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hackleburg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining industries.

Teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, organ donation is compulsory, and citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. The Grendels's national animal is the the Dire Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Golden Bond.

The Grendels is ranked 174th in Wysteria and 117,605th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -1,127 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
