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 anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 26.707 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 23,335 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 Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 873,761 Golden Bonds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,412,469 per year while the poor average 60,859, a ratio of 88.9 to 1.

Cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, vanity is considered the fifth cardinal virtue, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home. 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 1st in Wysteria and 1st in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 8,491 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
