The Indomitable Borderlands of The Grendels is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Warleader Yarooo with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 25.8 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 4%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining industries.

It's always rabbit season, citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, and the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth. 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 119th in Wysteria and 81,909th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 43 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
