Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Infection of Edgemaster is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Haruhi Suzumiya with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.411 billion Burst Linkians 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 minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seireitei. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Burst Linkian economy, worth an astonishing 18,168 trillion Gils a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 744,292 Gils, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,081,407 per year while the poor average 69,121, a ratio of 59.0 to 1.

Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink, the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, and eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Edgemaster's national animal is the Hollow, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Haruhiism.

Edgemaster is ranked 18,043rd in the world and 53rd in Capitalist Paradise for Highest Poor Incomes, with 69,121.69 Standard Monetary Units.
