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 remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 26.889 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 23,570 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 876,574 Golden Bonds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,515,866 per year while the poor average 34,888, a ratio of 186 to 1.

Wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, immigrant Maxtopians are routinely sold on popular internet auction sites, and euthanasia is legal. 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 3rd in Wysteria and 10th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 625 Whatever.
