The Indomitable Borderlands of The Grendels is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Warleader Yarooo with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 25.304 billion The Grendelsians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

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 2%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining industries.

Women wear burqas to avoid unwanted male attention, birth rates have hit an all-time low, skateparks can be found in every city, and the controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. The Grendels's national animal is the the Dire Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Golden Bond.

The Grendels is ranked 100th in Wysteria and 62,747th in the world for Most Average, scoring 851 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
