Freedonia is an island where Robert Gru, Dru Gru and John Gru established and the latter used to live in. After acknowledging the existence of his twin brother Dru, Felonius Gru takes his family to visit Freedonia to meet him.


Freedonia has a Mediterranean appearance, though the inhabitants speak English, they wear German clothing and have German writing as tradition. During the Gru family's visit, Freedonians are having a Cheese Festival, where there are bustling market stalls of candy and crowded celebration activities, people wear traditional dress with children and little girls having a cheese dance as part of betrothal; there are also cheese statues for celebration.

Unlike the police in Gru's neighborhood, the Freedonian police are harsh on crime, as revealed when a police chase quickly ensued after Dru stole candy; although, instead of police cars, they ride bikes or pigs to chase Gru and Dru. The Freedonians are also very tied to their customs and traditions, as Niko's Mother shows by cursing Margo when she turns down the betrothal proposed by Niko. However, most Freedonians seem to be skeptical about legends, such as existence of unicorns.
