The Nomadic Peoples of Grendelr is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Targaryen with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, parental licensing program, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.438 billion Grendelrians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Smaug. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Grendelrian economy, worth 232 trillion Draconeses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 161,970 Draconeses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 493,286 per year while the poor average 41,276, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, and the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grendelr's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
