The Abyss of Grimsby town is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Emperor and CEO Pong Lenis III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, aversion to nipples, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.858 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of England. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Grimsby townian economy, worth 408 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 219,729 Bins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,160,516 per year while the poor average 22,106, a ratio of 52.5 to 1.

Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, in a desperate bid for cheap airfare Grimsby townians can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, and the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb. 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 159,641st in the world and 6,606th in the South Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 0.17 Average Smiles Per Day.
