The Indomitable Borderlands of The Grendels is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Warleader Yarooo with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 26.568 billion Grendels are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

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 23,169 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 872,065 Golden Bonds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,719,726 per year while the poor average 52,063, a ratio of 109 to 1.

Cities are engulfed by smog, graffiti graces every city's streets, corporate 'hostile takeovers' now involve ICBMs and main battle tanks, and the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form. Crime is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The Grendels's national animal is the the Dire Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Grendels is ranked 161st in Wysteria and 125,783rd in the world for Healthiest Citizens, with -36 Standard Bananas Ingested per capita per day.
