The Indomitable Borderlands of The Grendels is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Warleader Yarooo with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 25.781 billion Grendels 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 5%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining industries.

The government is a law unto itself, university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts, movies and computer games are strictly censored for violence, and it's always rabbit season. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. The Grendels's national animal is the the Dire Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Golden Bond.

The Grendels is ranked 4th in Wysteria and 32nd in the world for Largest Populations, with 25,781 Capita (millions).
