The Indomitable Borderlands of The Grendels is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Warleader Yarooo with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 24.67 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

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.

Most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, nude art is becoming wildly popular, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and the children of The Grendels are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. The Grendels's national animal is the the Dire Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Golden Bond.

The Grendels is ranked 3rd in Wysteria and 10th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 605 Whatever.
