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 remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and infamous sell-swords. 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 220,226 Bins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,059,937 per year while the poor average 26,660, a ratio of 39.8 to 1.

Large areas of Grimsby town are not accessible by the public, the streets are increasingly clogged with poverty-stricken beggars, high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, and the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth. 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 1,756th in the world and 35th in the South Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 8,894.68 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
