The Indomitable Borderlands of The Grendels is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Warleader Yarooo with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 25.464 billion The Grendelsians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining industries.

People of faith are sent to twelve-step programs for 'The Cure', construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, agricultural science is the most competitive subject at The Grendels's universities, and school uniforms are compulsory. 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 3rd in Wysteria and 11th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 609 Whatever.
