Featuring the fictional 'Garda Unit for the Bizarre and Unprecedented', the game can be best described as Flann O'Brien's World of Darkness. This organisation was said to be founded by Michael Collins in 1921 at a meeting with several notable historical figures, some of whom have bizarre supernatural qualities, such as WB Yeats being the most powerful wizard on Earth, Tom Crean visiting the The Mountains Of Madness, and Aleister Crowley being obsessed with the comedy value of crocodiles.

Recurring characters in GUBU include Detective Lorcan Fallon (great grandson of Dick "Bang-Bang!" Mulcahy), "The Bull" O'Cooley (a bull who turns into man form), and at least one priest per mission. Opponents have included included "The Minister For No Fun", the town of Gort, Unprecedented Boats off the Clare Coast, MI5's anti paranormal group the Z-List, the Bureau L'Estrange, the SkangerDragon of Finglas, and The Boss Charles J Haughey.

GUBU also makes a brief, if inaccurate, cameo in Gar Hanrahan's Laundry RPG core book.
