The Indomitable Borderlands of The Grendels is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Warleader Yarooo with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 25.497 billion The Grendelsians 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 1%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining industries.

The lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, there are no minimum wage laws, the children of The Grendels are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Warleader Yarooo's bedroom. 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 107th in Wysteria and 61,547th in the world for Safest, scoring 85.4 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
