The Indomitable Borderlands of The Grendels is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Warleader Yarooo with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 24.705 billion 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining industries.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Hackleburg Times is sold out, thieves are flogged in public for their crimes, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and rap artists are regularly jailed for promoting extremist groups. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. The Grendels's national animal is the the Dire Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Golden Bond.

The Grendels is ranked 203rd in Wysteria and 122,714th in the world for Best Weather, with -9,504 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
