The Final Battle of Grimsby town is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Emperor and CEO Pong Lenis III with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.202 billion Grimsby townians 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 tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry and Education also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of England. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Grimsby townian economy, worth 497 trillion Bins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 225,749 Bins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,127,062 per year while the poor average 25,457, a ratio of 44.3 to 1.

Woodcutter axes are cited as the most common cause of death amongst Superbugs, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Grimsby townian language, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Grimsby town's national animal is the Superbug, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Ready Steady Cook.

Grimsby town is ranked 10,099th in the world and 232nd in the South Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
