The Villanous Overlord of Grimsby town is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Emperor and CEO Pong Lenis III with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.83 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 3.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Grimsby townian economy, worth 400 trillion Bins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 218,863 Bins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,053,380 per year while the poor average 26,495, a ratio of 39.8 to 1.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, Grand Emperor and CEO Pong Lenis III's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, and people talk about things being better when men were men. 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 157,482nd in the world and 6,520th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 48 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
