Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Indomitable Borderlands of The Grendels is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Warleader Yarooo with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, sprawling nuclear power plants, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 27.052 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 23,755 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 878,143 Golden Bonds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,934,118 per year while the poor average 48,057, a ratio of 123 to 1.

Mobile phone masts are being erected all over the country, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, and construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway. 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 148th in Wysteria and 146,948th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -1,957 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
