Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Indomitable Borderlands of The Grendels is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Warleader Yarooo with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, enslaved workforce, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 27.644 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 24,494 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 886,058 Golden Bonds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,586,364 per year while the poor average 35,265, a ratio of 186 to 1.

The Dire Bear racing stadiums are open 24/7, vile black smog from coal power plants has enveloped several major urban centres, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, and the controversial show 'Who Wants to be an Immigrant?' has become wildly popular. 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 130th in Wysteria and 111,590th in the world for Most Politically Free, scoring 12 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
