Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Indomitable Borderlands of The Grendels is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Warleader Yarooo with an even hand, and notable for its enslaved workforce, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 27.312 billion Grendels are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business 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 24,100 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 882,400 Golden Bonds, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,685,123 per year while the poor average 87,800, a ratio of 53.4 to 1.

Visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, the nation has recently been attributed to the funding of terrorist organisations, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, and the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form. 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 131st in Wysteria and 127,797th in the world for Best Weather, with -7,068 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
