Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Indomitable Borderlands of The Grendels is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Warleader Yarooo with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.617 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 27,026 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 912,519 Golden Bonds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,617,876 per year while the poor average 64,567, a ratio of 87.0 to 1.

Urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, concussed the Dire Bearball players cannot remember their lineup position, the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled The Grendels with a very polite populace, and unemployed mercenaries drift the country looking for new careers. 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 6,791st in the world and 18th in Wysteria for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 7,731.66 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
