Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Indomitable Borderlands of The Grendels is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Warleader Yarooo with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.621 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 The Grendelsian economy, worth an astonishing 25,775 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 Book Publishing. Average income is a breathtaking 900,579 Golden Bonds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,427,814 per year while the poor average 67,207, a ratio of 80.8 to 1.

City rooftops are pockmarked with the shattered remains of experimental delivery drones, citizens have never heard foreign radio, organ donation is compulsory, and citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want. Crime is totally unknown. The Grendels's national animal is the the Dire Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Grendels is ranked 50th in Wysteria and 78,324th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.322 Stalins.
