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 notable for its unlimited-speed roads, absence of drug laws, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.869 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, although Industry and Education are also considered important, 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 2.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Grimsby townian economy, worth 411 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 219,999 Bins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,058,847 per year while the poor average 26,633, a ratio of 39.8 to 1.

People regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, large areas of Grimsby town are not accessible by the public, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, and high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD. 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 1,745th in the world and 35th in the South Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 8,903.78 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
